Freed-Hardeman University will observe Veterans Day Saturday, Nov. 11, with a performance by Mobility Brass Quintet, an ensemble within the United States Air Force Band of Mid-America, and an address by Major General Paul Johnson (retired). The program will begin at 10:15 a.m. in Heritage Commons on the FHU campus.
The newest performing group of the USAF Band of Mid-America, Mobility Brass Quintet is comprised of two trumpets, French horn, trombone and tuba. The group is known for its versatility and outstanding musicianship. Their repertoire spans five centuries, from the Renaissance to American musical styles. Whether a military march, jazz standard or an original arrangement of patriotic favorites, each Mobility Brass Quintet program is planned for a blend of inspiration and entertainment.
Johnson retired in 2016 after more than 31 years of active duty service in the United States Air Force. He is a command pilot with more than 3,000 hours in the A-10 attack aircraft and has flown combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. He commanded at the squadron, group, and wing levels with his last wing command being at Kandahar Airfield Afghanistan. He and his wife Patricia are both Freed-Hardeman alumni as are their three children.
FHU President David Shannon will welcome guests to the program and express his gratitude to veterans. In case of inclement weather, the program will be moved to the Hope Barber Shull Academic Resource Center.
FHU students will have an additional observation of Veterans Day Friday, Nov. 10, at 3:30 p.m. at the flagpole in front of Brewer Sports Center. The student-led program has been planned by Carl Hartman, FHU veterans liaison.
