Veterans Day observance planned for Nov. 11

On Friday, Nov. 11, the Office of the Recording Secretary is sponsoring a gathering of University staff, faculty, students and alumni from 8:30 to 9 a.m. in the chapel in observance of Veterans Day.

Participants will be encouraged to reflect upon the service and sacrifice made by prior generations and upon those being made by men and women in uniform today.

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; and remarks by Thomas Breidenthal, dean of religious life, and retired Navy Cmdr. Bruce Freeman, a member of Princeton's class of 1969.
