Albany State University, a campus that normally bleeds blue and gold, was full of red, white and blue Monday, in honor of Veterans Day.
Dozens gathered for a patriotic ceremony full of sounds and symbols of America and our freedom.
Students, faculty, elected officials and veterans came to honor the brave men and women who have fought and are fighting for our country.
"They gave a sacrifice to our country and we can take out the little time we have to give back to them. It's a great sacrifice that they've given, so we should sacrifice a little time for them," said Jasmine Davis, an ASU student.
This year, Lieutenant Commander Chris Williams of the United States Navy spoke to the crowd about the importance of remembering our veterans.
"The purpose of Veterans Day is a day to celebrate veterans and their service, but also to take away from it the idea that selfless service to your community is also an aspect and a trait that we can pull from this day and carry forward," said Williams.
Williams, who's family is from Albany, says this celebration at ASU is extremely appropriate as more of our military members return home from war and head back to school.
And those veterans who are also students say the acknowledgement doesn't go unnoticed.
"It's very important because veterans need to know that the community cares about them. They give the ultimate sacrifice by going out and serving their country and it's always good to know that the community keeps that in mind and know that freedom is not free," said Roderick Jolivette, an ASU student and veteran.
And students who came just to observe and share a moment of silence say it's events like this that helps keep the American tradition alive.
Lieutenant Commander Chris Williams also donated $5,000 to the ASU foundation at Monday's ceremony.
