Palomar College’s Veteran Services is holding the annual Veterans Day Ceremony event on Thursday, Nov. 7.

From 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Veterans Memorial lawn will hold current and former veterans, who will be speaking about the honor of serving their country and its citizens.

Veterans Services Technician Jessica Horn spoke about what the event means to her.

“We have the most veterans of any community college in the state, so we feel that we have to do something,” Horn said. “This event is really near to our hearts. Some of the names on that memorial, we’ve served with.”

There will also be a ‘Dedicate a Miniature American Flag’ event during the ceremony. For $2, you can dedicate a miniature flag to any service member. Some of the dedications will be read aloud during the ceremony, while the remainder will be bound or typecast for others to read. The flags will be placed in the ground during the ceremony, after which students will be able to pick them up.

For more info on the event, contact Veterans Services at (760) 744-1150 ext. 2594, visit the Veterans Services Center in the SSC Building or check out the Veterans Resources Center in SU-22.
