Heidelberg saluted the service and sacrifices of all veterans, past and present, during the annual Veterans Day ceremony this morning. The ceremony was organized by Student Senate.
The ceremony began with the singing of the National Anthem by junior music major David Carey. Those in attendance observed a moment of silence for alumnus Jim Roberts, ’65, former sheriff, city councilman and United Veterans Council representative, who died in September. Jim had been a mainstay at past Veterans Day ceremonies for years, leading the UVC color guard.
