Slippery Rock University marked Veterans Day with a pair of events on Wednesday, beginning with a breakfast in honor and remembrance of our military veterans, sponsored by the Veterans Center. The Veterans Day Ceremony followed with Army Capt. Joseph Barrow, an SRU assistant professor of military science, being awarded the Purple Heart for a combat wound he received in Afghanistan in 2013. As part of the event, alumni, faculty and students honored veterans with a 21-gun salute, the laying of a wreath and the playing of taps by The Marching Pride. The ceremony included remarks from Cheryl Norton, SRU president, and songs by the SRU Chamber Singers.
