Celebration of Veteran's Day at ULM

On Fri., Nov. 11, ULM will host a Celebration of Veteran's Day to honor all ULM veterans and family members who have served our nation. The event begins at 12 noon in Scott Plaza, adjacent to the ULM Library.

The program will include a welcome and recognition of these veterans and ULM family members. In particular, the event will honor Chad Powell, the son-in-law of Dan Chason of the ULM Police Department. Powell died while serving his country in the Iraq War. His wife is Danielle Chason Powell, and his son is 3-year-old Elijah Powell.

There will be a moment of silence. President James E. Cofer, ULM family members and the veterans will together tie a yellow ribbon around three trees in Scott Plaza. History professor Dr. H. Perry Jones will deliver a remembrance message. The event will close with a rendition of the Star Spangled Banner under the direction of Derle Long.

All visitors are welcome to attend.
