BGSU to hold POW/MIA remembrance event

Honoring the service of veterans and military members, Bowling Green State University will hold a prisoner of war/missing in action remembrance event at 10 this morning on the first floor of the Bowen-Thompson Student Union.

The POW/MIA event is organized by the BGSU chapter of the Student Veterans of America, a student organization that provides resources, support and advocacy to student veterans and military-connected students in higher education.

The BGSU Veterans Memorial, which is located in Carillon Park near the Jerome Library, will also have multiple American flags on display .

BGSU is ranked No. 2 in the nation and No. 1 in the Midwest as a top university for veterans and active military students, according to Military Times.

Where do Dems go from here?

Join J.M. Purvis, author of “Democrats 101: A Primer For Us” and Joe Miller, Ohio State representative on Monday from 6-8 p.m., at Grounds for Thought, 174 S. Main St., to discuss the election and what comes next.

Dems101 is about an idea: uniting the Democratic Party, then the majority of the American people, and doing it with a vision of the nation as a truly just society, according to a press release. Getting there depends on three things: core values (Creed), a common origin story and a clear vision of the future, without which nothing can be achieved.
