Cal State Bakersfield honored veterans, active-duty military and their families on Thursday during the school's second annual Veterans Day Celebration. A free lunch was provided and plenty of activities were in store, such as an obstacle course and the landing of a Black Hawk helicopter. State Sen. Shannon Grove and Kern County Veterans Service Department Director Joshua Dhanens, an Iraq War veteran and CSUB alumnus, both spoke at the ceremony, which was held at Runner Park at 9001 Stockdale Highway.
