Coast Guard veteran Douglas McCoach, Mechanical Tech I, Power Plant, leads the Veterans Day flag-raising ceremony at Stanton Energy Center.
The Stars and Stripes flapped in a strong wind as a vocalist sang the National Anthem during a Veterans Day flag-raising ceremony at Stanton Energy Center on Friday, Nov. 11. OUC employees, among them military veterans, stood at attention as the U.S. flag was hoisted to the top of the flagpole.
The event was streamed live on OUC’s YouTube channel so employees who were unable to attend could do so virtually. Click here to view the video.
“Veterans . . . thank you all for your time, sacrifices and willingness to serve our great nation,” said Coast Guard veteran Douglas McCoach, Mechanical Tech I, Power Plant, who led the event.
After the ceremony, all attendees were invited to a reception where veterans were presented with gift bags containing a pen and dog tag emblazoned with the U.S. flag.
