Parkersburg Campus Veterans Day Celebration

Dec 10, 2013

The Parkersburg Campus of American National University was host to a Veterans Thanksgiving Dinner recently.  Vets from throughout the Mid-Ohio Valley came to enjoy a holiday dinner of deep fried turkey, ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, and pumpkin pie. Veterans from World War II, Vietnam, and the war in Iraq joined together to share stories, relax and feast on the holiday fare.  The meal was prepared and served by the university’s staff and students.  While the adults were busy with conversation, the young people in the crowd made cards that will be sent to troops who are serving overseas during this holiday season.

Amanda Parkhurst, a student at the campus and a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, was one of the guests at the dinner.  “It was awesome of the college to participate in this wonderful program to reach out to the veterans of the area,” said Amanda.

The staff and students of American National University Parkersburg Campus were pleased to be able to thank the veterans for the service they have given to our country.  The gathering together of young and old to share experiences over a good meal was a wonderful beginning to the holiday season.

Student and Air Force Veteran Amanda Parkhurst was one of the guests at the Veterans Day dinner held at the Parkersburg Campus.
