Veterans Day Celebration and DAR Pinning Ceremony (New)
Designated Date • 2 p.m.-4 p.m. • Shapiro ABCD/RGC Courtyard
OLLI will honor our veteran men and women for Veterans Day with a special celebration. We ask you to join us as we enjoy a special presentation of our OLLI Veterans. We will once again have a display and PowerPoint presentation of veterans, along with an Honorary Pinning Ceremony, presented by Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). Members from DAR will be performing a special pinning ceremony for all Vietnam veterans. This national commemoration is a Secretary of Defense initiative, authorized by Congress and launched by President Obama in 2012. Widows of Vietnam veterans who died since the war ended are eligible for a blue star pin in honor of their spouse’s service. Refreshments and a social hour will follow the presentation.
