Memorial Wreath Ceremony
Hosted by ASU’s Veterans Educational and Transitional Services (VETS) Center, the ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. and is open free to the public. A wreath will be placed near the Memorial Oak Grove’s three brick monuments in memory of all those who have lost their lives in service to the nation.
Susan Williams, director of ASU’s affiliated military and veteran services, will give a brief address, and refreshments will be served in the lobby of the Administration Building following the ceremony.
The Memorial Oak Grove and the original brick monument topped by a bronze plaque were dedicated in 1949 to commemorate 29 San Angelo College students killed in action during World War II. Two additional brick monuments topped with bronze plaques were added in 2016. One honors all current and former ASU student veterans, while the other commemorates all former ASU students who died in military combat.
