9/11 Commemorative Wreath Laying

We had a lovely event this morning to commemorate 9/11 and laid a wreath at the UNLV Veterans Memorial.  We were honored to have so many members of the UNLV campus community join us and appreciate the participation of Air Force ROTC in presenting the colors and wreath and one of our own student veterans, Thomas Brecheisen, in playing the National Anthem and Taps.

Students assemble a flag display in honor of the lives lost on 9/11.
