Decatur, Ill (WAND) – Richland Community College honored veterans at a ceremony entering Veterans Day Weekend.
Among them former Marine Alex Romer. Romer was stationed in Washington, D.C. during his service. Today, he is a student at Richland.
“I love all of my professors. They’ve been very helpful,” Romer said. “I’ll soon be attending the University of Illinois in Champaign doing something called technical systems management which essentially combines business, agriculture and flight engineering.”
Honoring vets for Veterans Day is an annual event at Richland.
