Veterans Day Remembrance Ceremony
The Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets will honor Veterans Day and the service of our military with a remembrance ceremony. Del. Nick Rush of Virginia's 7th District, will speak.
After high school, Rush enlisted in the U.S. Army and was a paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne. He left active duty as a non-commissioned officer in 1989.
At age 23, he was elected to the Montgomery County (VA) Board of Supervisors as the youngest member in its history, serving for 12 years and holding both the chairman and vice chairman positions. Rush was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates in November 2011 and is now on his fourth term. In 2017, he was elected by his caucus to serve as majority whip.
At 11 a.m., Rush and Maj. Gen. Randal Fullhart, commandant of cadets, will place the memorial wreath in front of the cenotaph on War Memorial Court. The Gregory Guard, the corps' precision rifle drill team, will fire a rifle salute, and a bugler will play Taps.
