Special Induction Ceremony to be held November 10

May 24, 2017

LANSING, MICH. - Lansing Community College (LCC) is seeking nominations of local men and women who have served in the armed forces for the Veterans Memorial-an interactive exhibit housed in the Health and Human Services Building. The memorial was developed to honor Michigan veterans, with a special emphasis on those in Ingham, Eaton, and Clinton counties.

The selected veterans will be honored during a ceremony on Nov. 10, 2017 at LCC.

"Our goal is to honor local service men and women who have distinguished themselves by extraordinary heroism," said Andrew Cosgrove, director of LCC's Veteran and Military Affairs. "We may not fully realize or understand the hardships and risks they took on our behalf. This is an opportunity to share their stories and thank them for their service and sacrifice."

Nominees may have served in any branch during any military action, conflict, or war. Special emphasis is placed on World War II, the Korean War, and Vietnam era veterans.

To submit a service member for consideration, please complete the online form at lcc.edu/veteran/memorial/. The nomination period is open until Aug. 1, 2017.
