SUNY Plattsburgh honors veterans

PLATTSBURGH, N.Y. (WCAX) Many spots around our region marked Veterans Day Friday. The actual holiday is Saturday, but Friday, SUNY Plattsburgh held a flag-raising ceremony in front of Hawkins Hall.

We heard from students and staff about service and a key theme throughout their speeches was honor.

"That is the true meaning of Veterans Day-- you salute, recognize the sacrifice and most importantly you remember their sacrifice," said Christian Balan, a lecturer in cybersecurity.

Balan challenged people to think every day about what they could do to make a veteran's life better.
