UIVA, ROTC mark Veterans Day with morning reveille, flag display
Monday, November 14, 2016

The University of Iowa Veterans Association and Iowa Reserve Officers’ Training Corps honored Iowa’s veterans during the week of Nov. 6–12 with a reveille ceremony and the fourth annual Veterans Day flag display on the west lawn of the Pentacrest.

The nearly 6,000 tiny U.S. flags—each one honoring a veteran connected to the university or community in some way—were planted in the shape of the letter “I” on Nov. 6 by the UIVA with the help of high school students from the Upward Bound program.

On Saturday, Nov. 12, student veterans were invited onto the field during the Veterans Day/Military Appreciation football game to participate in an appreciation ceremony and display the U.S. flag.
