MSSU Veterans Day celebration


Missouri Southern hosted a Veterans Day ceremony.  Veterans and university students in MSSU's "Show Me Gold" program were among those in attendance.  The program helps train students to become part of the Missouri National Guard.

Today's guest speaker was retired Major Erv Langan of the U.S. Army.  Major Langan says today's soldiers and veterans aren't like those of year's past.

"I almost think they're more professional.  I grew up when we got drafted, and they don't have that today.  These guys, they go in because they want to.  A sense of community, or a sense of their country.  And so that's different, I think, then when I was in," says Major Langan.

Veterans Day celebrations continue throughout the week at Missouri Southern.  Click here for more information.
