Members of the university’s Army ROTC Duke Battalion, Student Veterans Association and Veteran Scholars Task Force will place about 2,500 small American flags, donated by Home Depot, on the prominent campus location in front of Wilson Hall.

The students will place the flags at 7 a.m. and remove them about 4 p.m. to honor flag etiquette.

JMU is currently home to approximately 250 students who have served in various branches of the service.

Veterans Day commemorates and honors military service and marks the anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I in 1918.
