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.
