DURHAM, N.H. – Join Air Force and Army cadets from the University of New Hampshire, along with the Friends of UNH ROTC, in a Veterans Day ceremony Friday, Nov. 9, 2007, at 2 p.m. in the Memorial Union Building’s Granite State Room. The ceremony will pay respect to the nation's veterans and induct UNH alumni into the ROTC Hall of Fame. It is open to the public.

A joint Army and Air Force color guard will post the colors, followed by the singing of the National Anthem. Cadets will read the biographies of the Hall of the Fame inductees and introduce them to share some words with everyone. Scholarships will also be presented to cadets.

Cadets begin paying respect to the country’s veterans with Reveille at 7 a.m., followed by a vigil at the American flag in front of Thompson Hall at 8 a.m. Two cadets, one Army and one Air Force, stand vigil at the flag until the Retreat Ceremony at 4 p.m.
