An outdoor ceremony to honor military servicemen and women will take place Tuesday at 11 a.m. on the Student Green at Risman Plaza.

All are invited to honor America’s veterans. According to the university calendar, a special invitation is extended to Kent State faculty, staff, students and community members who are veterans, active duty service members or those who have family members in the military.

The ceremony will include a joint color guard from Kent State’s Army and Air Force ROTC, remarks from President Beverly Warren and a Kent State alumni veteran Col. Richard “Rex” Ray.

Following the ceremony, attendees are welcome at the Kiva for a reception. All veterans are invited to attend the veteran lunch following the ceremony, which will be held in the Student Center starting at noon.

“The lunch is for Kent State veterans, community veterans and alumni veterans,” said Dawn Pugh, associate director of Adult and Veteran Services. 

In the event of bad weather, the ceremony will be moved into the Kiva.
