I invite you to attend our Veterans Day Ceremony, November 11 at 2:30 p.m. on our campus' Veterans Memorial Plaza. Senator Scott Brown, a member of Northeastern's ROTC program while he attended Tufts University and Boston College Law School, will return to the campus and participate in the ceremony.
This year's ceremony will be especially poignant as we will add Eric A. Jones, a member of the class of 2004, to Northeastern's Veterans Memorial Wall of Remembrance. Captain Jones USMC, age 29, of Mashpee, died on Oct. 26, 2009, while supporting combat missions in Afghanistan. Eric was a third-generation Husky, following in the footsteps of his father Kenneth, '70, and grandfather Alton, '53. His family will be present.
I hope you will join us on this occasion where we can remember and honor the generations of servicemen and women who have served our nation.
Joseph E. Aoun,
