College to Recognize Veterans Day with Ceremony

 College to Recognize Veterans Day with Ceremony

11/11/2013 

SUNY Cortland will celebrate Veterans Day with a 3 p.m. ceremony Monday, Nov. 11, in Brockway Hall Jacobus Lounge.

Sponsored by the College President’s Office, the event is free and open to the public.

The 30-minute ceremony and a reception immediately following in the Curry ’52 Main Lobby will provide an opportunity for SUNY Cortland students, employees and community members to thank veterans for their service.

Cadet Joseph Ursitti, a political science major at the College, will offer remarks as the event’s keynote speaker. Ursitti spent eight years in the U.S. Army, serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.

He earned the Army Commendation Medal with Valor for his actions during a daring raid mission in Iraq and plans to re-enlist as an Army officer after he graduates. Ursitti also is a member of the College’s Army ROTC program.

For more information, contact the President’s Office at 607-753-2201.
