The free public ceremony will be outdoors at the Carolina Alumni Memorial in Memory of Those Lost in Military Service, located on Cameron Avenue between Phillips (120 E. Cameron) and Memorial halls. The rain site will be the Tate-Turner-Kuralt Building at 325 Pittsboro St.
Members of the University and local communities, including veterans, are invited to attend. Limited parking is available in town pay lots off Rosemary Street. Attendees are invited to a reception after the ceremony.
A color guard representing all three UNC ROTC programs – Army, Air Force and Naval/Marine – will assemble at 10:40 a.m. before presenting the colors. Veterans will be asked to stand and be recognized as the conflict in which they served is named.
This year’s speaker will be retired Col. Bill Causey, a Greensboro native who graduated from Carolina in 1968. He later earned two master’s degrees, in business from Chapman University and in national security and strategic studies from the Naval War College. He also completed the advanced management program in the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.
