U.W. To Host Annual Roll Call Event For Victims of War On Terror
The Veterans Services Center (VSC) will host its annual roll call event at the University of Wyoming to honor the service members who have given their lives since Sept. 11, 2001, as a result of the war on terror. The event is scheduled Monday, Nov. 11, at 8 a.m. in Simpson Plaza. UW will join campuses from across the country in reading the names of the fallen soldiers on Veterans Day.
Marty Martinez, UW VSC project coordinator says the VSC will need 35-50 volunteers to read a block of names. Each time block is expected to last approximately 15 minutes. A particular time block may be requested, and anyone is welcome to read during multiple time blocks.
Name readings will continue through the day until the last name has been read. There will be a moment of silence at noon.
