Chapel tribute to honor veterans

Posted November 04, 2013

All are welcome to attend ACU's special chapel tribute to Veterans on Veterans' Day, Monday, Nov. 11. The assembly will honor those who have served and those who currently serve in the military.

American flags and patriotic visuals will surround attendees as ACU president Dr. Phil Schubert opens the ceremony. As a unique addition to this year's tribute, the Big Purple Band will play “National Pride March,” a piece composed by alumnus Bob G. Bailey (’52). The Austin Symphony has previously performed the piece.

Under the direction of Dr. Steven Ward (’92), the Big Purple Band will also honor the veterans with the “Armed Forces Salute,” which includes part of each military branch’s song. Veterans are encouraged to stand in recognition as their branches' songs are played.

The ceremony will begin at 11 a.m. and end at 11:30 a.m. in Moody Coliseum.
