Culver Academies Veterans Day 2019At the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the time-honored tradition of the Veterans Day ceremony at Culver Academies will take place Monday on the lakeside steps of the Legion Memorial Building. The ceremony is open to the public.

Capt. Alex Canacci ’10 will be the keynote speaker. A 2014 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, Canacci is the assistant brigade operations officer at Fort Benning , Ga., and is responsible for current operations taking place within the Airborne and Ranger Training Brigade.

The Veterans Day ceremony recognizes the sacrifices made by Culver alumni during times of war. Since 1924, Culver has recognized the sacrifices of American and Allied soldiers during World War I at 11 a.m. on Nov. 11. The ceremony has changed very little since that original Legion Memorial Building dedication ceremony.
