Although Veterans Day is officially Nov. 11, Lander University will celebrate the holiday on Friday, Nov. 10, at 10 a.m. in the Josephine B. Abney Cultural Center Auditorium with a program honoring those who have served in the United States Armed Forces. 

Led by the Lander chapter of the Student Veterans of America, the program is free and open to everyone, and will be followed by a reception. 

Featured in the program will be a history of Veterans Day and the meaning behind the Missing Man Table, also known as the Fallen Comrade Table, and the annual presentation of Lander University’s Outstanding Student Veteran of the Year Award.
