COLUMBIA — A ceremony to honor MU's veterans will take place at noon in Memorial Union.

The ceremony will include a guest speaker and the annual laying of the wreath tradition, and the Remembrance Day National Roll Call will occur to remember those who, as President Lincoln described, “gave their last full measure of devotion” while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to the event's Facebook page.

The ceremony will conclude at 1 p.m. with a national minute of silence to honor fallen soldiers. A reception in Memorial Union will follow.
