The display was organized and prepared by Alicia Johnson, a senior linguistics major who works with the MSSC’s outreach program. Ms. Johnson, who served as an aviation boatswain during her career in the Navy, also spoke at the Veterans Appreciation Event held last Monday to honor our veterans. The medals, uniforms, posters, pictures, and other memorabilia were donated for the display by students and staff members.
