Commerce – Opening ceremonies are scheduled Thursday for the annual Veteran's Vigil at Texas A&M University-Commerce.
The event, held each fall, serves as a salute to veterans. Over a span of three days, veterans and university officials will hold a series of events to pay tribute to the United States Coast Guard.
Thursday's opening ceremony begins this morning at 11 a.m. in the Founders Lounge of the Sam Rayburn Memorial Student Center. Closing ceremonies are to be held Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium, just before kickoff between A&M-Commerce and Southwestern Oklahoma.
