AIC Honors Veterans Day with “Honoring Our Heroes” Ceremony

aic veterans daySPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – American International College held a series of events in honor of Veterans Day Monday.

Dubbed, “Honoring Our Heroes,” the ceremonies included a Hampden man’s tribute to his father, who was a D-Day veteran, and the pledge of allegiance at the campus quadrangle.

Sergeant Kenneth Geromini urged everyone to remember all veterans on this day.

“I want you to be aware of all those other soldiers who are our vets, our supply soldiers, who came and gave us clean socks every once in a while. Our mail clerks who kept us informed of what was going on at home. It’s a day to honor all veterans,” said Geromini.

Rememberances will continue into Tuesday with a screening of “The November War,” a documentary about ten marines caught in the second battle of Fallujah.

A panel will also be held Wednesday on the film with producer and Marine Garret Anderson and his father, an embedded war journalist.
