Long Beach Veteran’s Day
Doing what you believe is right isn’t always easy…particularly when you’re an anti-war activist drafted into the Army during the Vietnam War….
The Found Theatre is proud to host the exclusive Southern California engagement of Howard Petrick’s award-winning solo show “Breaking Rank!” Fresh from the prestigious, invitation-only New York Solo Festival, Petrick will appear at The Found for three performances only: Friday and Saturday, November 9 and 10, and Sunday, November 11.
California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) will host a ceremony in honor of Veterans Day on Thursday, Nov. 10, beginning at 11 a.m. at the Speakers Platform in front of the University Bookstore.
All veterans, their families and friends are invited to join the CSULB community as it recognizes the nation’s military veterans, especially the more than 400 student veterans currently attending Cal State Long Beach.
