[WATCH] MTSU memorial ceremony honors Cold War veterans

MTSU’s Veterans Memorial Committee recognized Cold War vets with their annual service to kick off activities surrounding the 34th Salute to Armed Services Game Nov. 7. But veterans from World War II forward received the royal treatment during the daylong festivities surrounding the Blue Raiders’ Conference USA football game against visiting Marshall in Floyd Stadium.

Between the approximately 30-minute memorial service outside the Tom H. Jackson Building and the football game — complete with special Band of Blue halftime salute — there was a military science ROTC-sponsored picnic, Vets’ Village and plenty of activities for veterans and their families and friends. Nearly 600 vets and their family members attended the picnic and game.
