Campus to screen documentary, perform community service in honor of veterans

11/4/2011 —

In honor of Veterans Day, Penn State Lehigh Valley will host a program recognizing the sacrifice and service of our armed forces at 1 p.m. on November 11 in room 135 at the campus in Center Valley. During the event, a WWII veteran will share his personal experiences and what Veterans Day means, and students, faculty and staff who have served in the military will be recognized. In addition, a short documentary film, "A Lasting War," will be shown. The 15-minute video features three local WWII veterans who fought in different theaters of battle sharing their experiences. The event is free and open to the public.

Following the program, a group of students will depart the campus at 2 p.m. to perform community service at the Veterans Sanctuary in Allentown.

The campus' Student Government Association is also selling "Support the Troops" bracelets and donating the proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project.
