SUMMARY: James Madison University will recognize veterans of the armed forces, in particular those 6,796 veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Global War on Terror in Iraq and Afghanistan, with an extensive flag display on the Quad.


James Madison University will recognize veterans of the armed forces with an extensive flag display on the Quad on Monday, November 12, Veterans Day.

Flags will be placed beginning at 6 a.m. and will be removed at 5 p.m. to honor flag etiquette. Veterans Day commemorates and honors military service and marks the anniversary of the armistice that ended World War I in 1918.

The display is a collective effort made possible by the Veteran Scholar Task Force, the Student Veteran Association, the Army and Air Force ROTC programs, and the Military Occupation and Intelligence Association (MOIA).
