Widener Veterans Day Ceremonies on Tap

November 10, 2011

The freshly painted flagpole in front of Old Main will be the site for the Veterans Day ceremony at Widener University at 11 a.m. Friday.  The ceremony includes military hymns, laying of a wreath in honor of veterans, a 21-gun salute, taps, lowering of the colors and a guest speaker — U.S. Army Col. Kirk Whitson. Whitson, a native of Missouri whose father fought in World War II, last year was interviewed for an oral history of Afghanistan and Iraq by the National Journal that you can read online.
