LFCC to honor service members in virtual Veterans Day celebration
Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) will honor service members in a virtual Veterans Day Celebration on Wednesday, Nov. 11.
The event, held on Zoom, will begin at 5:30 p.m. and will feature a video honoring veterans and their families.
Some of LFCC’s veterans, including biology instructor Jerome “Butch” Austin and LFCC Police Officer Brian Higgins, alumnus Jobe Wood and student Erich Galaviz, will share their personal stories and memories of their time in the service.
Individuals can join the virtual program at https://vccs.zoom.us/j/88920506213.
LFCC is also inviting the community to take an active role in supporting service members this year. Individuals can submit pictures with the name of a veteran or veterans for a virtual wall of honor. The picture should include a military background and can contain a special message.
This virtual wall of honor will be featured during the Veterans Day presentation, and will also be available to view later. Submissions will be accepted through 5 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 10, at https://forms.gle/XaBuT8mt5RXWnh5R8.
Additionally, LFCC students, staff and faculty can sign up to complete a pack of 10 holiday cards for service members as part of America’s Adopt a Solder program. Those interested can sign up between Nov. 9 and Nov. 13 at https://forms.gle/XBaBQTcNkveVsqWA6.
