Observing war's 7th anniversary

Members of the Emory community will observe the 7th anniversary of the war in Iraq on Tuesday, March 16. The event, set for the Dobbs University Center outdoor terrace from noon to 1 p.m., will feature a reading of the names of U.S. service people who have died in the wars in Iraq and in Afghanistan during recent months.

“Once again we plan a commemoration for our service people and their families who have sacrificed immensely during the past seven years in Iraq,” organizers STAND with ME (Members of Emory) said in a statement. “Our intent is to offer a neutral, non-partisan observance that unites a larger Emory community in a visible appreciation of the soldiers, civilians and families who have been deeply involved. We also seek to increase the diversity of organizers and participants in this annual event.”
