The University of Mary Washington’s Association of Student Veterans paid tribute to the lives lost in the September 11th attacks on Thursday, Sept. 11. The event began at 8 a.m. in front of George Washington Hall with the raising of the American flag and a bugler tribute. A moment of silence was observed throughout campus at 8:46 a.m.
The Association of Student Veterans extended the opportunity for all members of the UMW community to join in a moment of reflection and remembrance on this 13th anniversary of the attacks on our nation.
Organizer Golda Eldridge, who is director of leadership at UMW, said the ceremony provides a chance to “come together and celebrate America’s strength and resilience in the face of this ongoing threat.”
“We can remember the lost and recognize the opportunity our nation has to preserve and protect freedom around the world,” said Eldridge.
