The victims of last Tuesday's violence will be remembered along with those who are still unaccounted casualties of the nation's military conflicts.
The event, which is part of the ROTC's annual POW/MIA commemoration, will begin at 6:25 a.m. with a silent run starting at the front entrance of the Flynn Recreation Complex. At approximately 7:15, cadets will raise the national colors and POW flags on the pole in front of Conte Forum.
"We want to recognize those who serve our country daily who were the victims of the recent attacks," said ROTC unit commander Captain Brett Tashiro. "The sacrifices of fire fighters, police officers and EMTs are rarely recognized," he said, "but they serve the nation as much as we [in the military] do."
