Veterans Day is an important tradition in the High Country Sheriff Len Hagaman says.
It's important to honor our brave men and women and their sacrifices, he says.
Hagaman, a Vietnam-era veteran, has a High Country Veterans Day tradition.
He plans, once again, to attend the Veterans Day ceremony this morning at Appalachian State University.
Because Veterans Day fell on a Sunday, Appalachian State University is having its ceremony today at 7:30 a.m. It all happens at the memorial beside B.B. Dougherty Administration building.
Brian Stokes, ASU student and Marine Corps veteran, will be the guest speaker. After spending five years in the Corps that included two tours of duty in Iraq, Stokes enrolled at ASU where he played on the national championship winning Mountaineer football teams of 2005 and 2006.
Refreshments will be served in the administration building lobby after the ceremony.
