VETERANS DAY OBSERVANCE SET
Veterans Day is held around the country in order to honor America's current and previous servicemen and women. Originally called Armistice Day, and created by President Woodrow Wilson to celebrate the end of World War I, Veterans Day continues to focus attention on veterans and their sacrifices for the United States.
UW-RF's observance of Veterans Day will include an invocation, flag-raising ceremony, ceremonial rifle volley and the sounding of "Taps."
Mark Kinders, UW-RF director of University Communications and member of the Marine Corps from 1968 to 1972, will also be speaking at the event. Kinders was also a part of the Presidential Security Detail for Air Force One at the "Western White House," the private home in San Clemente, Calif., of President Richard M. Nixon.
