Binghamton University held a short ceremony to honor veterans Monday morning.

Members of the Binghamton ROTC unit were joined by New York State University Police for a flag-raising outside of the Couper Administration building. Graduate Student Shayne Thompson organized the ceremony along with other weekend events and specials. Thompson is an ROTC Cadet and a member of the National Guard. He had four uncles who fought in Vietnam.

"On Veterans Day, I think of my uncles. I think of the stories they told me about friends who didn't make it back. It just means a lot to me and our family," said Thompson.

Student Deanna Feuerbach sang the national anthem and B.U. President Harvey Stenger made brief remarks.
