Veterans Celebration continues; observance is Monday
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
spacer image
This week’s Veterans Celebration, featuring a variety of programs and activities for the campus and community that honor military service members, past and present, will culminate in UA’s annual observance of Veterans Day on Monday, Nov. 11.

The observance will begin with a 24-hour vigil at noon on Sunday, Nov. 10, as U.S. Army ROTC cadets guard a symbolic eternal flame at the Buchtel Hall flagpole.

A continental breakfast honoring veterans begins at 8 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 11, in the Student Union Ballroom. At 9 a.m., Terry Gould, UA alumnus, U.S. Navy veteran and author of "How Can You Mend This Purple Heart?," will speak. At 10 a.m., at a ceremony at the Buchtel Hall flagpole, Jim Tressel, vice president of student success, will speak. Cadets will then conduct a 21-gun salute.

Gould will speak again at 7:30 p.m. at the Stage Door in E.J. Thomas Performing Arts Hall, delivering a presentation titled "How Can You Mend This Purple Heart: A Veteran's Journey of Healing & Redemption."

Gould earned a B.S. in Technical Education, followed by an MBA from Baldwin-Wallace University in Berea, served in the U.S. Navy from 1968 to 1971. His book, "How Can You Mend This Purple Heart," is a fictionalized account of his own experiences in a military hospital, where he spent 15 months recuperating with severely wounded Marines.

Today, Gould is retired after a 30-year career in marketing, advertising and public relations. He lives near Nashville, Tenn.

To see the full schedule of speakers, films and programs, visit UA's Veterans Celebration online. For more information, contact Mary Rossett at 330-972-7382, or Lorri March at 330-972-5517.

Many departments and organizations on campus have participated in planning and sponsoring events for this week, including the Veterans Steering Committee, Military Services Center, UA Adult Focus, Student Life, UA Army ROTC, University Libraries and Zips Programing Network.
