Opportunity to pay tribute to military personnel

So many names on so many plaques — Veterans’ Plaza is an ever-present reminder of the courage and commitment made by servicemen and women.

Plaques in Veterans' Plaza recognize military men and women for their service and sacrifice for the United States.

Located between University Hall and Memorial Field House, the plaza is an integral part of Main Campus. The U.S., Ohio and POW/MIA flags are displayed around the clock and lit up at night.

“Veterans’ Plaza is a place to pause and reflect on our freedoms,” Vern Snyder, vice president for institutional advancement, said. “It’s a respected site that speaks to the history of our great nation and the military personnel who sacrificed so much to keep our country strong.”

Those who wish to celebrate and remember a loved one can be part of the inspirational memorial.

An individual name can be included on a main plaque for $100, or a larger custom plaque can be purchased for $1,000. After the cost of the plaque, gifts are tax-deductible. For details, go to http://utole.do/veteransplaza.

“As we approach Veterans Day, it’s important that we remember those who have served our country,” Snyder said. “The UT Veterans’ Plaza is a constant reminder for our community and campus.”
