    Retired U.S. general and former Secretary of State Colin Powell is going to be making a Veterans Day visit to Vermont's Norwich University in Northfield.

    Norwich says Powell will deliver the fall 2014 Todd Lecture Series talk on Tuesday, Veterans Day.

    Powell will also honor all veterans in a remembrance ceremony on the Northfield campus in which he will review the entire 1,450-member Corps of Cadets.

    The ceremony will include remarks by retired Army Gen. Gordon R. Sullivan, a Norwich alumnus and a 1959 graduate who is the chairman of the Norwich Board of Trustees.

    The title of Powell's talk will be "Leadership: Taking Charge."
