Hundreds of people attended Rochester Institute of Technology's fifth annual Veterans Day Breakfast.
The event was held at the Gordon Field House.
On Veterans Day, the organizer of the breakfast, Barry Culhane, said the school has a message.
"I think Pres. Destler said it very well, we thank you for protecting our freedoms, freedoms that we enjoy every day, and freedoms for which you've made the sacrifices."
Among the veterans in attendance, Gary Beikirch of Greece, one of only 79 living recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor.
