In honor of Veterans Day, the UNL ROTC program will hold a ceremony at 8 a.m., Nov. 11 at the flagpole between Canfield Administration Building and the Nebraska Union.

The joint-ROTC ceremony, which will include representatives from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps, is free and open to the public.

"Taps" will be played to honor all of the United States' fallen veterans. The etiquette for a flag raising and "Taps" is for participants to stand still and face the flagpole. Veterans are authorized to salute with or without wearing a hat; civilians may place their right hand over their heart; and, only the leader of uniformed personnel in formation will salute.
