On Tuesday, November 10, SPU will hold a Veterans Day Ceremony and Chapel on campus, organized by University Ministries and a group of faculty and student leaders representing veterans.
The ceremony begins at 11 a.m. in First Free Methodist Church and will include the Pledge of Allegiance, the presentation of colors, and the singing of the national anthem. The ceremony will be followed by a chapel worship service. Retired Navy Reserve Captain and Associate Professor of History Rod Stiling will speak, and SPU veterans will participate in the service. Those attending the service are invited to bring a photo of a friend or family member who is currently serving or has served in the military. A poster board will be available to post photos, and a prayer will be offered for those pictured in the military collage.
We regret that our initial decision about our Veterans Day service caused so much misunderstanding. It was never our intent to dishonor our veterans or their service to our country.
