Reminder: The second annual Ithaca College Veterans Day celebration will be held from 12:05-1:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 11, in the Emerson Suites.

This free event will feature the Ithaca College Brass Choir, Premium Blend (an a cappella group), Graham Stewart '81, '01, and Jesse Sprole '04, as well as Air Force ROTC from Cornell and Ithaca College.

Featured speakers will be Korean war veteran (US Army) and retired professor Douglas Armstrong, and Timothy Merritt, currently an IC staff employee and US Air Force Veteran of three recent Middle East conflicts.

The purpose of Veterans Day is to show appreciation to the 48 million Americans who have served honorably in the military since 1776. There are currently about 25 million living veterans. Please join us in thanking these special men and women!
