Honoring The Fallen

As part of Park University’s annual Veterans Week, the Park Warrior Center honors the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice of service by reading the names of the fallen from Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. Beginning at 9 a.m., volunteers took turns outside of Thompson Commons, reading the names of service members killed in action. In a brisk and chilly wind, the volunteers read for more than five hours, recognizing the 6,000-plus service members from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps.

At the end of the reading, PFC Justin Love honored the fallen on behalf of the entire Park community, calling for the playing of Taps.
