Veterans Day celebrated at USF


The Veterans Committee at USF Sarasota-Manatee honored students, staff, faculty and community members who are veterans of the United States military with its second annual Veterans Day ceremony. Col. Jerry Hearn, who served two tours in Vietnam, addressed the audience as the ceremony’s keynote speaker and discussed Honor Flights, a project run by the Rotary District 6960 that will take 60 World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., to view the World War II memorial and other memorials. Honor Flights are taken at no cost and will begin in June 2012.
