Veterans, family, and friends are invited to arrive between 10 am and 10:45 am for refreshments and light snacks before the start of the program. At 10:45 am, veterans will assemble for the ceremony and playing of “Armed Forces Salute,” before the presentation begins at 11 am.

Additionally, cadets will perform their 12-hour vigil at the Sergeant Floyd Monument beginning at 5 am on November 11. The vigil will close at 5 pm with a Remembrance Ceremony, remembering those who have served or are still serving.
