Rep. Kathy Stein to speak at Transylvania on Veterans Day; 113th Army Band Quintet to perform

LEXINGTON, Ky.—The 113th U.S. Army Band Quintet will perform and Representative Kathy Stein (D-Lexington), will give the keynote address at Transylvania University’s Veterans Day ceremony, Tuesday, Nov. 11, at 6 p.m., in the Mitchell Fine Arts Center. The event is free and open to the public.

The brass quintet is part of the 39-piece 113th U.S. Army Band, the second oldest Army band in the United States. It supports the U.S. Army Armor Center, 16th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Armor Training Brigade and the U.S. Army Recruiting Command at Fort Knox.

World War II veteran and Lexington resident George Hendricks will deliver a special reflection on his service. Hendricks, father of Lexington Fire Chief Bob Hendricks, was a staff sergeant in World War II and participated in numerous campaigns in Northern Africa and Italy. Hendricks, 92, was also the first Eagle Scout in Greenup County, Kentucky, and has been involved in Scouting for more than 75 years.

“This event will serve as an important way of honoring the service and sacrifice of the brave men and women who have served and continue to serve in our armed forces,” said junior Tyler Murphy, chair of the Student Government Association’s committee organizing the event.
