I visited the University today and received a walk through with Sergeant First Class, U.S. Army (retired) Douglas Salyer. He showed me all the different war items and was very informative on it all. This really is a must do if you or your family members are veterans or not. It is very educational and interesting. I saw hand grenades and a lot of different things. I saw Veterans History Book/LC Eastern KY Vietnam Book and a Lawrence Co. WWll Vol. 1 book which they have for sale. It has 356 veterans from the Tri-State area with 90% from Lawrence County.
This event is free and open to the public, honoring our local veterans for their service. Thank-you to all who have served our country!
