Veteran’s Day events slated for Stanford November 11, 2016 0 Comments Share tweet Caleb Smith Desk Editor By: Caleb Smith | Desk Editor Veterans, staff and community members will be gathering at Stanford today for a pair of Veteran’s Day events. The events will include a celebration of the Marine Corps’ 241st birthday and a Veteran’s Day reception. A Marine Corps birthday cake-cutting ceremony is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. today at the sunken garden in the Hoover Institute. The Marines have their actual birthday on Nov. 10, but the ceremony at Stanford will be held today this year. Additionally, a Veteran’s Day reception is scheduled for 5 p.m. in the Engineering Quad, with remarks between 6:15 and 7:15. Following a welcome from Dustin Noll, Kevin Mott ’17 will speak on the theme of continuing service, Professor Scott Sagan will talk about what makes a just warrior, and David Ahern ’17 will discuss the responsibility of veterans. The event will conclude with a reception. Although Veteran’s Day is a federal holiday, Stanford does not recognize it as an academic holiday on the Stanford calendar. Classes and business will be conducted as usual.
