 With hundreds of students attending, almost none of which knew the man is heartening. Young people in America recognize more and more the sacrifice veterans make to protect our country and keep us safe at home. “For us paying homage to a veteran, to bring him to our campus, to provide the burial rights he deserves, and to honor his legacy and to help our boys realize we have to stand with those who are marginalized,” said school president Peter Folan.
