Outside the Tom H. Jackson Building on the Middle Tennessee State University campus, the MTSU Veterans Memorial offers a quiet place of reflection for people, particularly around patriotic holidays.
The public is welcome to stop by on Wednesday, July 4, or any other day to pause and reflect on the sacrifices men and women in U.S. armed forces have made for their country.
In addition to a large, two-sided granite monument recognizing soldiers who have died in action, there are six smaller granite monuments, each with a flower basin, for the five military branches — Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard — and one for those missing in action.
Another monument, with a floral arrangement on top, reads: “To Those Who Have Fallen Who Were Students First And Served Their Country With Honor.”
Bricks, with inscribed names of living and deceased loved ones and friends, are part of the plaza.
Blue Raider Sports Properties, a division of Learfield Sports, is happy to announce that a three-year extension has been added to the broadcast agreement with NewsRadio WGNS Radio. The affiliation between Blue Raider Athletics and WGNS dates back to 1947 and, for the biggest part of those 68 years, has been a broadcast outlet for Middle Tennessee. The new agreement will mean that Blue Raider Network programming will be heard on NewsRadio WGNS through at least 2018.
