Flags planted on Old Main lawn for Memorial Day

WWU student veterans who served in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines planted more than 150 flags in front of Old Main lawn this week to represent Washington state service members who have died in the line of duty since Sept. 11, 2001.  

The flags were placed by the AS Veteran Outreach Center with the help of students including Alex Miller, Reuben Cuenca, Nick Scheuing, Garet Huddleston and Russell Thompson, who is the AS Veteran Outreach coordinator.
