The new Ed Kramer Veterans Flag Plaza with its stunning display of the U.S. and Texas flags surrounded by others representing the five military branches will be the appropriate location for Weatherford College’s observance of Veterans Day Thursday, Nov. 8. Organizers have planned a fitting tribute to the men and women in the Armed Forces, “Past, Present and Future.”
The ceremony will start with music by the WC Howlin’ Brass band at 10:45 a.m. WC President, Dr. Kevin Eaton and Board of Trustees Chairman Frank Martin, both veterans themselves, will offer welcoming remarks, and the College choir will lead the attendees in the singing of the National Anthem. Solo performances by Doug Jefferson, who will sing “America the Beautiful,” and Sonny Burgess singing “God Bless the U.S.A.” will highlight the morning’s ceremony.
Additionally, Eaton will make a special presentation to Weatherford businessman and Marine veteran, Ed Kramer, for whom the flag plaza has been named.
Representatives of the Army, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force and Marines will post the military flags as a medley of the branches’ signature themes will be played. Afterward, a list of local fallen heroes who have died in action will be read aloud as a single toll of a bell marks each name.
“Altogether, truly a fitting tribute for our men and women who have and are serving our country in one of our military forces,” said Ralph Willingham, director of admissions and VA Affairs. “We invite the entire community to come out and enjoy the ceremony with us.”
