campus celebration to honor veterans

hey folks: not sure if you heard about this or not. i hope some of you can make it to this event--and for those of you who have missed a few classes, you can attend this, write a one-page response/summary about it, and i will forgive one absence [for those of you who haven't miss, extra credit...]

-- The university's annual Veterans Day Rock Ceremony will take place at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday (11/10) at Memorial Rock on the Oval side of Bricker Hall. During the ceremony, the university and its Reserve Officers Training Corps, honor Ohio State's alumni who have given their lives for their country. More than 900 alumni have given their lives to help Americans enjoy the freedoms and liberties they have today. The tradition of honoring these defenders was established in 1919, when taps was blown at 10:58 each Wednesday morning during the school year in memory of those students who had lost their lives. At that moment, the entire campus would halt and pay homage to these individuals. The playing of taps once a week has evolved into the present Rock Ceremony.
