With Memorial Day Weekend upcoming, Cal State San Bernardino’s Palm Desert campus will pay tribute to veterans Thursday with a special on-campus ceremony.

The 3 p.m. event will include a flag-folding ceremony, a performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” by the Rancho Mirage High School Chamber Choir and a three-volley salute by the local VFW Post 6476 Honor Detail.

Retired U.S. Marine Corps Gunnery Sgt. Joel Daniels will play “Amazing Grace” on the bagpipes, and dean Sharon Brown-Welty will deliver remarks.

Tours of the campus’ Veteran’s Success Center, which offers programs and resources geared toward student service members, will be held following the ceremony.

The event is free, but guests were asked to RSVP with Deborah Buck by calling (909) 537-5195 or emailing dbuck@csusb.edu.
