WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — At 11 a.m., the same hour of the cease fire that ended World War I, UNC Wilmington honored those who have fought for the United States through the years.

The ceremony at the Commons Amphitheatre on campus featured Lt. Col. Nicholas Davis of the Wounded Warrior Battalion as the keynote speaker.

Students also got together and discussed how the sacrifice of soldiers has impacted them.
