For 35 years, Cedarville University has honored United States veterans through a special service held on Veterans Day. This year, a special emphasis will be directed toward military chaplains during the university’s annual Veterans Day program on Tuesday, Nov. 11, at 10 a.m. The event will be held in the Jeremiah Chapel that seats 3,300 in the Dixon Ministry Center.
The program will recognize more than 450 veterans, representing each military branch. The university’s symphonic band will play, “The Light Eternal”, which tells the story of the four chaplains who lost their lives on the SS Dorchester after being attacked by a German U-boat during World War II.
Honored guest David Carr, Air Force Chaplain, will speak at the event. Carr has been a United States Air Force chaplain since 1996. He graduated from Cedarville in 1983 and is currently serving at the Pentagon. Other speakers include retired three-star Lt. Gen. Loren Reno, dean of the school of business administration, and Thomas White, president of Cedarville University.
