Library Lawn Flag Display

Tue, 2017-11-07 00:00
Tuesday, November 7 – Sunday, November 12, 2017

Flag display to kick off the week leading to Veterans Day at OSU

An emotionally-moving flag display that represents our fallen military heroes will start a week of appreciation and recognition that will continue through Veterans Day, Saturday, Nov. 11, and beyond at Oklahoma State University.

“Because the sweeping flag display, on OSU’s Edmon Low Library lawn, has touched so many since it started three years ago, it will remain in place this year from this evening until Sunday, Nov. 12, at 3 p.m.,” said Rick Hansen, retired Marine Corps captain and coordinator of Veteran Student Academic Services at OSU. “Last year, several veterans, students and others who visited the display offered their thanks, including a lady who brought her father, a World War II veteran, to take a photo with his great-grandchildren.”

Volunteers will begin placing the more than 6,900 flags on the library lawn on Tuesday, Nov. 7, at 1 p.m. Each flag represents a military service member who gave his or her life in our nation’s defense during the Global War on Terror.

On Wednesday, Nov. 8, students, faculty, staff and friends of OSU are being invited to help place a dog tag on each flag starting at 9 a.m. The dog tags are embossed with the name, rank, branch of service and home of record for each of the fallen military service members.

“We have found this to be an extremely moving experience, putting a name to the flag representing one of our fallen comrades,” said Hansen. “A list of those who have sacrificed all, will also be available on the Edmon Low Library Plaza overlooking the flag display. The flags, dog tags, and lists will be available until 3 p.m. on Sunday.”



Purple Heart honoree and retired Sergeant First Class James Battles Jr., United States Army, will be guest speaker for a short ceremony honoring veterans, which will be held at 10:15 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 10, on the Edmon Low Library Plaza. Battles retired after 23 years of military service due to injuries he received during a tour of duty in Afghanistan in 2011-2012. In addition to being awarded the Purple Heart Medal, he received the Bronze Star Medal, the Army Commendation Medal with three Oak Leaf Clusters, and the Army Achievement Medal with four Oak Leaf Clusters. Battles is currently the commander of Chapter 820 of the Military Order of the Purple Heart.



OSU’s annual Veterans Appreciation Dinner will be held on the Thursday, Nov. 9, at 6:30 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom.  For a second year in a row, the evening will serve as a “welcome home” for our Vietnam era veterans as part of the Commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War.  Retired Major General Douglas O. Dollar, United States Army, will present a copy of the 50th Anniversary of the Vietnam War Proclamation and a lapel pin to each Vietnam era veteran not previously recognized. 



If you are a Vietnam era veteran who has not been previously recognized at the dinner, please consider making reservations by emailing militaryveterans@okstate.edu and providing your branch of service, final rank, and dates of service. The dinner is free to each veteran being honored and $20 per guest. 



Reservations will be closed and tickets must be picked up by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1. Tickets are also available at OSU in the Veteran Success Center in the North Classroom Building on the corner of Hall of Fame Avenue and Monroe Street or in the offices of University College, room 040 in the basement of the Student Union. If you have several people in your party who would like to sit together, please indicate this when you pick up your tickets, since seating is assigned.  We have had late requests for tickets in the past, so those who find they are unable to use their tickets, are asked to please inform our office so we can reissue them to others.



The final event of the week is the induction of four Oklahoma A&M College/OSU alumni to the Oklahoma Military Hall of Fame wall outside the Veteran Success Center at 3 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 10. Three posthumous inductions will include Col. Lee Gilstrap, United States Army; Col. Tom J. Rounsaville, United States Army, and Lt. Col. Karl K. Dittmer, United States Air Force. Retired Col. William A. Ahrberg, United States Army, the only living alumnus who will be added to the wall this year, plans to be in attendance for the event with several members of his family. Family members will be on hand to represent Gilstrap, Rounsaville, and Dittmer. Eighteen veterans and the OSU ROTC were previously recognized on the wall. Please join us in the North Classroom Building to recognize these heroic alumni. 



The primary task of the Veteran Student Academic Services office at OSU is to coordinate with campus, community, state and federal organizations to provide services to more than 850 veterans and military-affiliated students in Stillwater. The office is also in charge of the Veterans Success Center on campus, which offers veteran students a place to study, interact and seek academic assistance in transitioning to college life.
