Veterans Day at Widener University

November 11, 2010

In commemoration of Veterans Day, Widener community members gathered in front of Old Main on Nov. 11, 2010, for the traditional Laying of the Wreath ceremony. Cadets with the U.S. Army ROTC Freedom Battalion — which include students from Widener, West Chester and Villanova universities, among others — also performed a 21 Gun Salute, a Lowering/Raising of the Colors, and a rendition of Taps.  Click here for a complete photo slideshow.

Also, don’t forget that you can explore the library archives online anytime for records and news clippings about veterans from Pennsylvania Military College and Widener.
