by Kaitlyn Coughlin, Public Relations Writer

Cedarville University will honor military veterans at a special Veterans Day Chapel on Monday, Nov. 12. The event will be held in the Dixon Ministry Center from 10-11 a.m. and is open to the public.

This year’s event will feature Vietnam veteran Gaylen Blosser. Blosser is a resident of Greenville, Ohio, and serves as president of Blosser Stephens LLC, a roofing company. He also works as a reporter for the Daily Advocate, Greenville’s newspaper. He was awarded the Bronze Star during Vietnam. 

Col. Jeffrey Haymond, Ph.D., who serves as associate professor of economics at the University after a 29-year career in the United States Air Force, will also speak at the event. Maj. Clyde Autio will pray during the service. Autio retired from the Air Force in 1989, and since then he has been involved in community service and ministries to the armed forces.

The service will also include special music by the Cedarville Symphonic Band and the University’s choral groups.

There will be reserved seating for all veterans and their guests, and veterans are encouraged to attend in uniform.
