We are going to place flags 4'x 6' (no impact to the lawn) on Cater Lawn to represent fallen Veterans. Our emphasis is to honor the Iraq War Veterans since 2023 marks the 20th anniversary from of the start of the war. We are also planning on posting small tutorial signs speaking about different milestones of achievement and sacrifice made throughout the war. Think small informational graphics on corrugated plastic. Also honor the 8 Medal of Honor recipients with the citations of they award displayed The event will host volunteers from the AU Veterans Resource Center and Student Veterans.
