At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the Edinboro ROTC honor guard conducted a three-volley salute and flag-folding ceremony to honor America's veterans on Veterans Day. The ceremony was at Reeder Hall, located at 219 Meadville St., on the Edinboro University campus.

University President Fred Walker, talked about the importance of the service these young men and women provide. Walker served in the military as well so Veterans Day means a lot to him. Edinboro also welcomed back former student Sgt. 1st Class Nathaniel Wilson who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He talked about the importance of military families and the way family members could motivate soldiers throughout their deployment.

This ceremony is an Edinboro tradition to honor the men and women who have sacrificed so much for our nation. According to the Edinboro University website, “for the seventh straight year in a row, victory media has named Edinboro University to its coveted ‘military friendly schools’ list.”
