Veterans Day Ceremony


Each year, the cadets of Army and Air Force ROTC at UNH, along with the “Friends of UNH ROTC”, organize a Veterans Day Ceremony.

Respect to the Veterans of our nation begins promptly with Reveille at 0700, and with the commencement of a flag vigil 0800 at the American Flag in front of Thompson Hall. Two cadets, one Army and one Air Force, stand vigil at the Flag until the Retreat Ceremony at 1600 hours.

At 1400, the ROTC cadets and Friends of UNH ROTC conduct a Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony in the Memorial Union Building. Once complete, the new inductees, families, cadets, and visitors move to the Thompson Hall flag for the day's final respects to the Veterans. The Retreat Ceremony is conducted by a joint color guard.

The ceremony is a joint one, but organized on alternate years by the Army ROTC (603) 862-1078 or Air Force ROTC (603) 862-1480.

This year's ceremony will be organized by the Air Force ROTC detachment at UNH. They can reached at the above phone number.
