Founders Day 2020: Commemorating 181 Years of VMI

Founders Day 2020 Ceremony


VMI celebrated 181 years Nov. 11. Rain moved the review parade to Cocke Hall. Using radio communication to coordinate with the indoor ceremony, the cadet battery fired howitzers on the Parade Ground. The herald trumpets also played on the Parade Ground. Brig. Gen. Robert Moreschi, then-acting superintendent and dean of the faculty, took the review in Cocke Hall.
