Western hosts week-long memorial for vets


LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - Western's Veteran Services is honoring La Crosse area veterans all week.

A Veteran's Day memorial is on display in the student union.

Each weekday, the display will feature a different Western student veteran who will share his or her military experiences.

Monday's display featured Gary Grenawalt. He served in the U.S. Navy for 21 years.

"We feel it's very important to get the word out to everyone that this is the time of year that we do observe this," Grenawalt said. "But, it should be observed all the time. Not just today. It's very important for people to know veterans are serving every day."

Western is hosting a special remembrance roll call and a national moment of silence Nov. 11, Veteran's Day, at 1 p.m. in the student union.
