Student Veterans Day at LCCC

According to Kevin Yarbrough, Adviser for the Student Veteran’s Association, the following events to honor both veterans and those serving in the armed forces will take place on Veteran’s Day on Nov. 11:
Activities will start off at 11 a.m. with a flag raising ceremony outside the front of the Administration Building.
At noon, in the Ludden Library, there will be a large printed flag with the blue field of stars and nothing but white line spaces. Workers will hand out red squares for people to write messages to a veteran or active duty member. Workers or the writers will then place those squares to represent the red line of the flag.
There will also be a slide show from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the library of all the students, teachers and staff of the college who are veterans and will also include photos of active duty members.
Veterans Day was previously celebrated as Armistice Day to mark the end of World War I. The name was changed in 1954.
