LTU Veterans Group Vic President Kirill Pavlov (L) and President Stephen Pavlik (R ) welcomed MSGT Edwin Sizer Jr. to campus for an early Memorial Day observance.

The LTU Veterans Group observed Memorial Day on campus on April 21 by remembering the soldiers, marines, airmen, and sailors who have given their lives during the past decade in the War on Terror in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Photographs and biographies of Michiganders who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country have been displayed around the campus. The Veterans Group invited MSG Edwin Sizer Jr. and the ROTC Color Guard from Eastern Michigan University to participate in the Memorial Day observance ceremony.

The university also helped show two movies, “Taking Chance” and “Lone Survivor,” in an effort to help bring light to the many sacrifices our men and women in uniform have to make.
