Because Veterans Day falls on a weekend this year, a Veterans Salute will take place midweek at Muskegon Community College on Wednesday, Nov. 8, at 11 a.m. by the flagpole located near the main building entrance.
MCC student veterans will raise the flag and post the colors. U.S. Army veteran Jerry Conrad, an MCC adjunct instructor and local businessman, will serve as the emcee and will lead the pledge of allegiance. Rev. William Anderson, an Air Force veteran and pastor of Philadelphia Baptist Church in Muskegon, will deliver the invocation.
MCC Executive Vice President and Provost Dr. John Selmon will welcome those in attendance. SPC Andrew Worcester, an MCC student and U.S. Army veteran who served in Afghanistan, will provide remarks.
Following a moment of silence, the VFW Muskegon County Council will deliver a 21-gun salute and, following the playing of “Taps” by MCC student Bri Holtrop, will retire the colors. The ceremony will close with a Benediction by Rev. Anderson.
