UW of Marathon County honor fall veterans


WAUSAU (WAOW) - UW of Marathon County joined a nationwide effort honoring men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Students and faculty members read the names of service men and women who lost their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan during the past decade.

More than 6,000 veterans were honored at UWMC on Friday.

Tegen Griffith is the President of the UWMC Veteran.

"Our friends, our buddies- our battle buddies. It's a somber day, it's a day of remembrance," Griffith said.

A moment of silence followed the roll call.

183 colleges and university campuses participated in the Remembrance Day tribute.
