Veterans, veteran organizations, and members of the public are invited to the annual Community Veterans Day program at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 11, which will take place in a new location this year--at the Ornelas Spiritual Life Center on the East Texas Baptist University campus.

The program this year will not only include speakers and musical tributes to honor the service and sacrifice of all veterans, it will also include a special presentation to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Armistice which ended World War I and took place on Nov. 11, 1918. The day was remembered as Armistice day until being renamed Veterans Day in 1954.


The A Cappella Choir of Wiley College, under the direction of Choral Director Stephen L. Hays, will sing our National Anthem for the program. They will also perform a special presentation of “Victory Tide” by William Grant Still, with words by Al Stillman.
