BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — Southern University’s Army ROTC will be honoring veterans by hosting the fourth annual Veterans Day 5k Fun Run and Bike Ride on Saturday.

“There are over 19 million veterans in our country, most of who have stood on the shoulders of parents, grandparents, and comrades. It gives great pleasure to be a part of such a prestigious group of individuals,” said Lt. Col. David Marshall Jr., professor of military science. “This event is a way to say thank you to all that have served and provides the opportunity to mold and groom our students to be leaders and the future of our U.S. Armed Forces.”

The route begins at the jaguar battalion headquarters and a tailgate for veterans will take place at J.W. Fisher Hall ahead of the football game against Jackson State University.
