The ceremony will include the presentation of the colors by the Princeton Army ROTC unit; the singing of "The Star-Spangled Banner" and "America the Beautiful" by Kenneth Grayson, foreman in the University electrical shop; an invocation and benediction by the Rev. Deborah Blanks, associate dean of religious life and of the Chapel; and remarks by retired Brig. Gen. George Eggers Jr., a member of Princeton's class of 1947. Retired Rear Adm. Kirk Unruh Jr., director of development relations and recording secretary, will serve as master of ceremonies.
All veterans and other members of the University community are welcome to attend.
