On Monday the SUNY Cortland is holding hold a ceremony at 3pm to mark Veterans Day and thank U.S. veterans who have served their country.
The service will feature words of remembrance from U.S. Army Major Kevin Swab who is the College’s ROTC senior military science instructor. SUNY Cortland Reserve Officer's Training Corps or (ROTC) cadets will be at the ceremony as well.
Swab is the first ROTC instructor to teach a class on the SUNY Cortland campus in about 20 years. The program returned to campus this fall after a nearly two-decade hiatus.
The cadets will "present the colors" at the ceremony, and one of them, communication studies major Adam Gonzalez, will read a poem commemorating the sacrifice made by men and women in service to their country.
A reception will follow in the lobby adjacent to the Hall of Fame Room. All members of the campus and community are welcome to attend.
