Roll Call to Honor American Service Men & Women

As part of a nationwide effort, Remembrance Day Roll Call at Garrett College will take place on November 10, 2017 beginning at 7 a.m. in the Garrett College Auditorium on the McHenry campus. During this commemoration, campus and community volunteers from many colleges and universities across the nation will read the names of the 6,900-plus casualties of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OEF), now called Operation New Dawn. The names of our fallen from the 1st Gulf War will also be read this year.

At 2 p.m. eastern standard time, all colleges involved in the National Roll Call will participate in a nationwide simultaneous "minute of silence". Cecil Glotfelty will follow by playing 'Amazing Grace' on bagpipes. A closing ceremony will take place at 4:30 p.m. with a 21-gun salute and the playing of Taps by the Honor Guard of VFW Post 10077.

Taking part in reading names is Libby Anderson, Garrett County resident. Volunteers are still needed to read names for this year’s roll call. Contact Kathy Fauber at 301-387-3057 or
