Published on: October 11, 2012Honoring the men and women who put on their respective military uniforms and fight for this country will be honored across the nation on Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
The Office of Student Life and the Veteran’s Club at Lone Star College-Kingwood invite the community to its Veterans Day celebration on Nov. 8 at 12:30 p.m. behind the Performing Arts Center’s patio.
“It is important for us to stop and reflect on the generous men and women who have risked and sacrificed their lives so that we can continue to enjoy living in freedom,” said Tracie Ring, Office of Student Life program manager. “It is wonderful that LSC-Kingwood supports celebrating the lives of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to protect us.”
In honor of all veterans, Atascocita High School will provide their MCJROTC color guard and a bugler to play “Taps” at the end of the ceremony. The Veteran’s Club will plant miniature United States of America Flags to honor fallen soldiers.
“We hold this event to acknowledge and thank the men and women of the armed forces and the local families in our area who have given us their sons and daughters. Their service and sacrifice will never be forgotten,” said Chris Michon, LSC-Kingwood student and member of the Veteran’s Club.
The Veteran's Club provides a social group to help veterans adjust to and become successful in civilian and college life; promotes college spirit and establishes and maintains fellowship amongst veterans and students on the campus; assists with dissemination of information valuable to veterans; integrates veterans and students into social and campus activities; and organizes worthwhile projects and events pertaining to veterans and their needs.
