Thank a Vet at Cal State Stanislaus

California State University, Stanislaus, has scheduled a "Thank a Veteran Day" Wednesday aimed at veterans and the general public.

Starting at 10:30 a.m. in the university quad, the event will include a posting of the colors ceremony and a reception and information fair for veterans.

Organizers plan to put out a banner and cards attendees can sign that will be sent to military members in Afghanistan and Iraq.

"The best thing about the event is watching the posting of colors ceremony, and seeing older and younger generations of veterans supporting each other," Troops to College — Stanislaus committee member Nadine Kent said in a news release.
