HIGH POINT, N.C., Nov. 12, 2010 – High Point University hosted a memorable Veteran’s Day Celebration that helped to honor the men and women who have served our country.

Cole Jr., USMC, who serves as the director of the Veterans Benefits Academy in Baltimore, and Capt. David Bain, USMC, an HPU alumnus who currently serves aboard the Marine Corps Base at Camp Lejeune.
