November 11th is the traditional Veterans Day, with observances in a number of churches. One Veterans Day event scheduled is the unveiling of a new monument outside of IUP’s Humanities and Social Sciences Building.
The monument project was spearheaded by the university’s Rho Tau Chi fraternity, which is comprised mostly of ROTC members. It honors veterans of Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom.
The official Veterans Day holiday will be observed on Monday, with services and commemorations across the county and the nation. In Indiana, the Veterans Day Parade will stop off at 10:30 in the morning.
