Eagle Battalion will honor veterans on Nov. 9

The Army ROTC program based at Georgia Southern University will pay tribute to the nation’s veterans with a special ceremony on Friday, Nov. 9.

All veterans and the general public are invited to attend the Eagle Battalion event, which will be held at 11:45 a.m. on Sweetheart Circle.

The program will include a Fallen Soldier Ceremony that honors the memory of Capt. Edward Jason Korn, a former member of Eagle Battalion who died while serving his country in Iraq in April 2003.

In addition to Georgia Southern, Eagle Battalion includes ROTC cadets from Armstrong Atlantic State University, East Georgia College, Savannah College of Art and Design, and Savannah State University.

Korn was a native of Savannah and a graduate of Armstrong Atlantic.
