A Veterans Day observance commemorating all the men and women who have served the country will be held Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. on Albany State University's Pedestrian Mall between the HPER gym and ACAD building.
Michael Bryant, field representative for United States Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr., will be the keynote speaker for the Veterans Day observance. Leland Burkart, chair of the Military Affairs Committee for the Albany Area Chamber of Commerce, will bring greetings.
Bryant served in the United States Marine Corps from March of 1987 until March of 2001. He is currently a captain in the Georgia Army National Guard and serves as the ammunition officer for the 110th Combat Service Support Battalion in Tifton, Ga. He is a past commander of the 1230th Transportation Company in Bainbridge, Ga.
Serving in his 12th year as a field representative for Congressman Bishop, Bryant is an ex-officio member of the Thomasville-Thomas County and Valdosta-Lowndes County Chambers of Commerce. He was appointed to work for Congressman Bishop in September of 1997 after working with a number of youth programs such as the Pelham Youth Development Center, the Gator Human Services, the Thomas County Juvenile Court, the Albany Group Home, the First Step Training (JTPA), the Thomasville YMCA, and the Thomasville and Thomas County Boards of Education.
Members of the ASU community and Albany residents are welcome and encouraged to attend the ceremony.
