Kent State University held its annual Veterans Day observance on Thursday, Nov. 7, at 11 a.m. on the Student Green at Risman Plaza. The outdoor program included a flag-raising ceremony conducted by a joint color guard from the Army and Air Force ROTC programs, and remarks from Kent State President Lester A. Lefton.

Former Staff Sergeant for the U.S. Air Force Andrew Altizer was the guest speaker for the event. Altizer is a recipient of the Air Force’s Airmen College Scholarship and a current student at Kent State. A reception in the Kent Student Center Kiva lobby followed the brief program.

All were invited to come and pay tribute to America’s veterans. A special invitation was extended to Kent State faculty, staff, students and community members who are veterans, active service members or who have family members in the military.
