ECU campaign offers chance to honor military service, support
A campaign under way at East Carolina University presents an opportunity to commemorate military service with a permanent memorial on campus.
The 2012 Service to Nation Campaign is offering engraved brick pavers priced at $125 each to honor individuals who have provided service in support of national defense. That includes military service as well as participation with organizations designed to support military efforts, such as the Veterans Administration, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Support the Troops, Wounded Warriors and similar programs.
Each 6 x 9 inch commemorative paver will be engraved with the honoree’s name and service details, and installed on the Memorial Walk west of Christenbury Memorial Gymnasium. Pavers purchased before Oct. 19 will be installed prior to a Nov. 9 dedication ceremony in honor of Veterans Day.
Proceeds will be used for Army and Air Force ROTC scholarships at ECU.
The campaign is sponsored by the ECU College of Health and Human Performance and the Office of Military Programs. For additional information, contact Steve Duncan at firstname.lastname@example.org or Kim Walters at email@example.com or call (252) 328-9572.
