Texas State prepares
to pause, honor veterans
By Mary Kincy
Texas State is once again responding to a call to action issued by a 20th-century American president — but the words are not those of the university’s lauded alumnus President Lyndon B. Johnson.
Rather, Bobcats are answering the entreaty of President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who on Veterans Day 1954 proclaimed that Americans should “solemnly remember the sacrifices of all those who fought so valiantly, on the seas, in the air, and on foreign shores, to preserve our heritage of freedom” and should fall “to the task of promoting an enduring peace so that their efforts shall not have been in vain.”
In keeping with Eisenhower’s vision of an America united to honor its servicemen and -women, Texas State will host a Veterans Day Commemoration from 10:45-11:05 a.m. Friday, Nov. 11, in the Quad.
