'In the end, they had each other' General reminds of soldiers' bond

With the elements against it, the Cameron University Veterans Day ceremony moved into the trenches of the McCasland Ballroom.

The stiff winds from the north whipped tree limbs in a violent act of mourning, large snowflakes destined to melt once aground fell as fluttering tears to the yellowed turf outside. This was the backdrop out the window as the ceremony began and the Cameron University Color Guard presented the flags for salute. This served as visual metaphor for those who’ve served and to those who have given their lives for this nation.
