It was a bright and sunny Veteran’s Day here in Prescott, Arizona. The student veteran’s of Embry-Riddle and of the community were recognized today with a parade and 24-hour vigil in downtown. Every year the cadets of the Air Force Honor Corps at Embry-Riddle Prescott work a 24 hour vigil at the local Veteran’s Hospital to thank the veteran’s of our nation for their service. The vigil is long, hard, and cold, however, the cadets are honored serving those who have payed a price for our freedom.
At the end of vigil the parade started up in downtown and at its completion there was quite a scene on the square. Street vendors, music, talks, and all kinds of fun activities commenced. Over all it was a fun event for the entire community. Maybe next year our potential freshman will have the opportunity to join us and see the awesome events that Embry-Riddle and the community host to honor our veterans. We would love for you to join us!! Please visit our website here and if you would like more information about Prescott AZ check out the Daily Courier for local news.
