A Clemson Memorial Day: Our hero salutes his heroes

On a beautiful, sun-drenched but cool day in Clemson last week, the hero who doesn’t think of himself as a hero stepped away from his walker and snapped off a salute that would have been the pride of any parade ground in the country. (Photo by Ken Scar) Full Story »



Thanks David....

Thank you for including:
The Cold War – 28
Global War on Terrorism – 3
For many of us, they were continuations of the Vietnam Nam Era, on active duty & as civilians working for DoD. The “Cold War” wasn’t always cold.

We Clemson Alumni who served in the Armed Forces are humbled by the sacrifice of our brothers and sisters who represent our country and university so well.

I don’t know of anyone who could have written this article better, Mr. Hood. Thank you for writing so often of the things that hold us together at Clemson.
