A Veterans Day program is set for 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 11, in front of Eastern Illinois University's Old Main.

Community residents are invited to join a host of individuals and groups, including the Student Veterans of Eastern and other student, staff and faculty veterans.

Among those scheduled to speak are faculty veteran LTC Stephen Knotts, student veteran August Lamczyk and EIU Provost Blair Lord. Ann Boehlefeld, an EIU student veteran, will join Lord in the wreath presentation. Narration will be provided by Cadet Robert Hale.

The National Anthem will be sung by EIU student Gina Marcin, the three-volley salute will be performed by the EIU ROTC Panther Battalion, and "Taps" will be played by EIU student Spencer Powell.

In the case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved inside the building.
