Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

For the 20th straight year, Albany State University celebrates veterans day on campus.

The University's Concert chorale sang and the band played patriotic songs at the ceremony.

The Chief of Staff for the Marine Corps Logistics Command was the guest speaker.

He said he was glad the students are carrying on the tradition of Veterans Day.

"What they have today is because of the sacrifices of veterans," said Colonel Yori Escalante.  "And not only that, to let people understand what it is the veterans learn through the military and how they can take that back to the workforce, into the community."

The Albany State University ROTC department also took part in hosting the annual Veterans Day Tribute.
