The annual Rock Ceremony at The Ohio State University, a somber tribute to the sacrifice made by alumni in service of the country, launched a series of honors for veterans this weekend.
Thursday, in a cold and steady downpour, university leadership and members of the Army, Navy and Air Force ROTC units presented a wreath of flowers at the rock that honors the lives of more than 900 Ohio State alumni. The ceremony has been celebrated for more than 100 years and includes a 21-gun salute and a rendition of “Taps.”
