On Wednesday, Nov. 11, College of Western Idaho (CWI) will honor veterans, members of the United States armed forces, and their families with an observance ceremony at CWI’s Nampa Campus Academic Building. The event will start at 1 p.m.
The ceremony is open to the public and will feature a student speaker, student choir, guest speaker, and refreshments. This year’s guest speaker is Jeff Bacon, a retired Naval Officer with 26 years of service.
In addition, the event will feature the CWI Patriot Range as a ceremony backdrop. The Patriot Range, originated by the CWI Veterans Association, is a powerful patriotic display of more than 300 American flags. Thanks to generous collaboration between this student organization, CWI Student Enrichment, and the Eagle Field of Honor, the Patriot Range will be on display at the Nampa Campus through Nov. 12 as part of the tribute surrounding Veterans Day.
