Thomas Nelson Community College Rallies To Honor the Fallen


Published: September 28, 2011

Following the 10th anniversary of September 11 tragedy, Thomas Nelson Community College has joined a nationwide grass-roots effort to honor American service men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice in Iraq and Afghanistan during the past decade.

On Veterans Day, Friday, Nov. 11, campus and community volunteers at more than 100 college and universities across the nation will read the names of the 6,200-plus casualties of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OEF), now called Operation New Dawn.

TNCC is looking for volunteers to read the names of our fallen service men and women in the Remembrance Day National Roll Call and will observe at 11 a.m. PST (2 p.m. EST) a simultaneous nationwide minute of silence. Currently more than 117 schools in 43 states plus the District of Columbia have agreed to participate in the event. The event at TNCC will begin at 8:00 a.m. and will end approximately at 4:30 p.m.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact Kathryn Anderson, Director of Financial Aid and Veteran Services at andersonk@tncc.edu or 825-2851.
