CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - The University of Virginia is reinstating the 21-gun salute for next year's Veterans Day ceremonies.
The Daily Progress reports that the university is reversing its decision to drop the salute. University President Jim Ryan announced the change on Saturday. In a Facebook post, Ryan wrote, "Sometimes you make mistakes."
The salute has been part of ROTC ceremonies for at least a decade. It normally occurs at the end of cadets' 24-hour vigil on Veterans Day,
