MU Reserve Officer Training Corps held an honor guard to celebrate Veterans Day on Wednesday at the veterans' memorial outside the Boone County Courthouse. Cadets and midshipmen took turns serving one-hour shifts as they marched in front of the courthouse columns.
These honor guard rituals in Boone County have been Veterans Day traditions for 30 years. A main feature of the event is the reading of Boone County veteran’s names. Going by each war, an MU ROTC member reads off a list of every name.
The honor guard began began at 11:11 a.m. Tuesday and continued for 24-hours, through 11:11 a.m. Wednesday.
