Young Military at CU Celebrates Veteran's Day
Veteran's Day gives civilians the chance to honor the men and women that serve their country. Tomorrow, young military men and women on campus will also honor those who have served before them.
"Veteran's Day means a lot to me. I am not a veteran yet. I'm not even technically in the army yet so I respect the heck out of the prior service guys we have in the program and everyone walking around that is not in ROTC but has been over there and has been in the military. It's just kind of a way for me to say thank you until it's my turn," said Lukas Fischer, Army ROTC sophomore.
The University of Colorado will host a Veteran's Day ceremony at the UMC in Glenn Miller Ballroom tomorrow at 11 a.m. The ceremony will feature Broomfield state senator Schafer. "It's nice to have people appreciate the kinds of things people in my occupation do for a living because it's hard to leave your family and go overseas for fourteen months and be somewhere where you're constantly worried about your life," said Army reserve Max Cathcart.
The University Memorial Center is the official state memorial to honor those who served in the United States military.
