As part of our Veterans Week Programming this year, the Dean of Students and the Carolina Veterans Resource Center are proud to host retired Green Beret Michael R. Rodriguez, currently president and CEO of the Global War on Terrorism Memorial Foundation. On Wednesday November 9th at 7 PM in the Carolina Union Auditorium Mr. Rodriguez will discuss the legislative process of getting the Global War on Terror Memorial approved and placed on the National Mall in Washington DC— a task that spanned two presidential administrations and several Congresses. He will also discuss how his art in the metalworking medium influenced his healing from wounds of war after being medically discharged and the importance of public art to the nation’s historical memory. A Q&A will follow. (This event is approved for general education credit for the Campus Life Experience requirement under the IDEAS curriculum for undergrads. You can RSVP here.)
