Veterans Day Roll Call Event at UW to Honor Fallen Soldiers

November 3, 2015

Volunteers are needed to read the names of military veterans who have died serving their country during a Veterans Day event Wednesday, Nov. 11, at the University of Wyoming.

The UW Veterans Services Center (VSC) will host its annual national roll call program, joining campuses from across the country in similar events on Veterans Day.

The presentation of the colors and the playing of the national anthem begin the ceremony at 8 a.m. at Simpson Plaza, followed by the reading of the names of the deceased. A moment of silence is scheduled at noon, and the event is expected to conclude at 7 p.m.

VSC is looking for 65 to 70 people to read nearly 7,000 names. Volunteers are needed to read approximately 125 names, with each time block expected to last approximately 15 minutes. A specific time block may be requested, and anyone is welcome to read during multiple time blocks.

“Please keep in mind that the reading will be in chronological order, from 2001 to the present, so if there is a specific date (or name) that you wish to read, please specify,” says Marty Martinez, UW VSC project coordinator.

To volunteer, email the following information to uw-vets@uwyo.edu: full name; department, office or organization; veteran or non-veteran; phone number; email address; and a preferred time to read. If there is no time preference, one will be assigned.

VSC will work to honor requested times, but times will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.

Snacks, lunch and drinks will be provided for all volunteers and participants.

For more information about the event, call the UW Veterans Services Center at (307) 766-6908 or email uw-vets@uwyo.edu.
