Tigers honored United States military veterans all week on MU's campus. During Veterans Week 2014, Mizzou hosted a blood drive, an art show, a vigil, film screenings and a USO-style comedy show, and ROTC cadets and midshipmen, as well as Tiger veterans, took part in Columbia's Veterans Day parade.
The week's guest speakers included 9/11 survivor Michael Hingson, Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer and veteran/author/speaker J.R. Martinez. Stormie Dunn, author of Silenced No More, speaks about post-traumatic stress disorder at 7 p.m. Nov. 13 in Wrench Auditorium, Memorial Union.
On Veterans Day, Nov. 11, Mizzou held a ceremony on the east side of the Memorial Union to dedicate the new Blue Star Memorial, a marker sponsored by the Columbia Garden Club as part of part of a National Garden Clubs program to honor veterans. The dedication was followed by the annual wreath-laying ceremony and the National Roll Call. Throughout campus, trumpeters coordinated the simultaneous playing of “Taps.”
Trumpets sounded throughout the Mizzou campus on Veterans Day, as Tigers played “Taps” in honor of those who have served in the United States military.
