Remembering the Veterans
The ROTC is honoring the country’s veterans differently this year. Lt. Col. Jim Rouse, chair of the Department of Military Science said the idea came to him as he was sitting in the MSU Alumni Chapel during last year’s Veterans’ Day ceremony.
“I was thinking, ‘we can get out and engage the community,’” Lt. Col. Rouse said.
On Tuesday, a members of the ROTC went to the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. Veterans and ROTC members spent the afternoon entertained by a musical group performing patriotic songs, ROTC cadets giving personal testimonies and ROTC cadets folding an American flag before giving it to the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. Other events will be held throughout the week to honor veterans.
