Flag raising honors veterans

Flag raising honors veterans

Worcester State University will mark Veterans Day, Nov. 8, by raising a flag that was flown by members of the 181st Battalion, Army National Guard in Afghanistan. The Worcester-based battalion received the flag from state Sen. Stephen Brewer and after flying it in Afghanistan, battalion members who were also Worcester State students donated the flag to the university.

The ceremony will begin at 2:30 p.m. at the flagpole between the Shaughnessy Administration Building and Chandler Street. A reception in the rotunda for Blue Star Mothers will follow.
