DUBOIS – Veterans of the armed forces were honored at the annual Penn State DuBois Veterans Day Ceremony on Monday. Held in the Schoch Plaza, the ceremony was organized by the campus Veterans Club.
The ceremony opened with the Penn State DuBois Choir singing The Star Spangled Banner. Amazing Grace was performed on the bagpipes by Sandy Township Police Chief Don Routch.
Greg Stanek, vice president of the campus Veterans Club offered remarks.
A Marine Corps Veteran himself, Stanek said, “It’s important to remember that while we’re here at home, or at school, there are always people out there protecting or freedom and everything else we enjoy in our lives.”
