Remembering PMC-Widener’s 68 Fallen Alumni

May 28, 2010

Three plaques in front of Old Main at Widener University commemorate the names of the 68 Pennsylvania Military College and Widener alumni who “laid down their lives in service of their country.”  The plaques are pictured below, and can be enlarged by clicking on each image.  As President James T. Harris III wrote in his message in the spring 2010 magazine, the plaques are “a constant reminder to me that this institution, through all of its changes, is a place where graduates have always answered the call of duty for the nation.”

  1. WORDS ALONE CAN NEVER EXPRESS THE RESPECT AND AMAZEMENT THAT ONE FEELS FOR THE MEN YOU GAVE THEIR LIFE KNOWING ONLY THEIR FAMILIES FOR A SHORT MOMENT.
    OTHERS WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND THE REASONS FOR SUCH A LOST UNTIL THEY FACE A LOST OF A LOVED ONE…BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT FREE TO EXPRESS WITHOUT BEING SUPPRESSED, FOR THE LACK OF FREEDOM.
