Veterans Day Ceremony

Roger Williams University Reserve Officer Training Corps Cadets are extending an invitation for you to attend this year’s Veterans Day Ceremony.

On November 12, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. in front of the University Flagpole (Administration Building) we will be honoring those who have fought in past wars and those who are presently serving in the military. This year we will be specifically honoring Women in the Military.

This year’s honorable speaker will be Chief Master Sergeant Ashness. She was the first female selected as First Sergeant for the 143rd AW Support Group establishing new programs and regulations to positively impact the men and women of the 143rd Airlift Wing. With a deployment and multiple honorable positions in the military, we are grateful to have Chief Master Sergeant speak on behalf of women in the military.

The ceremony will continue, as tradition, to lay a wreath in memory of those who have or are serving in the military. Guests will be given the option to lay a carnation at the base of the wreath to show their respects as well. (Carnations will be provided).

We look forward to spending this exceptionally honorable day with you and your friends.
