Centralia College will host a Veterans Day observance at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Nov. 13, at the flagpole outside the Hanson Administration Building. The community is invited and encouraged to attend.
Featured speaker will be Centralia College student James Jacobs, a veteran of the US Army and California National Guard who began his career serving operations in Honduras, Panama, and Korea. He has since participated in three separate deployments in Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-08), and in Kuwait in support of Operation Spartan Shield (2014).
Other speakers will include Heidi Palmer, CC’s Vet Corps Navigator, who served six years as an Army prison guard, and Centralia College President Dr. Bob Mohrbacher. A wreath will be laid at the foot of the Soldier’s Cross and Taps will be played.
Refreshments will be available in the Centralia College Veterans Center (Kemp Hall, Room 103) following the ceremony.
