Honoring Woodward's Veterans

Woodward honored its veterans on Monday, November 11 with our annual Veterans Day ceremony. This year, Col. Dewey Wayne Waddell joined us to deliver the keynote address. Col. Waddell served in the Air Force as an F-105 pilot during the Vietnam War. In July 1967, he was forced to eject over North Vietnam while flying his 47th combat mission, and subsequently spent a harrowing 2,070 days as a prisoner of war in the infamous "Hanoi Hilton," finally being released on March 4, 1973.

It was an honor for our students to hear from Col. Waddell, and to participate in the annual laying of the wreaths. Thank you, veterans, for your service.

Check out some photos and posts from the day.
