11.12.2010

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.

The event, held in the University Center Extraordinaire Cinema, featured presentations by retired Lt. Col. John H. 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.
