Once again the Battalion observed Veterans Day by participating in the University of Washington Veterans Day Ceremony. The Midshipmen participated in a joint service formation with cadets from the other branches, which fell in on the symbolic 11th hour of the 11th day. The Battalion was privileged with speeches from Sen. Patty Murray, UW President Michael Young, Capt. Melin, and Distinguished Alumni Veteran Award recipient Charles Matthaei. For many of the Freshmen this was their first Veterans Day in uniform and helped showcase the importance of remembering those who came before. Flu shots were offered Tuesday until noon with many of the Midshipmen taking advantage of it. Remember next Wednesday is the official PFA.
