BANGORIn recognition of the incredible sacrifices made by members of the armed forces and their families to protect our way of life, Husson University will be hosting a Roll Call event at 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 9 at the G. Pierce Webber Campus Center.

“Honoring veterans’ service is an important educational opportunity. This holiday serves as a powerful reminder that freedom and liberty must be defended,” said Husson University President Robert A. Clark, Ph.D. “We will pay tribute to all those who fought in battle, including those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our nation. The outstanding men and women who have served in our nation’s armed forces deserve our gratitude.”

During the event, Husson University will participate in a “minute of silence” and a national roll call that honors those who have served, those who are serving, and those who gave their lives in service to our country. The Annual Roll Call is free and open to the public.

Danielle Leighton, the Veterans Administration certifying official at Husson University feels that events like this are very important. “Every American should make the effort to let veterans know how incredibly grateful we are for their service and sacrifice. Husson looks forward to demonstrating our gratitude to members of the armed services, both past and present. What they have done for all of us, can never be fully repaid.”
