Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets to Honor Hokies killed in Iraq

Details here.

This ceremony honors Hokies killed in addition to recent graduates Lt. Jeffrey Kaylor, of Clifton, Va., and Army 1st Lt. Timothy Price, of Midlothian, Va., both of whom were killed in action in Iraq in 2003 and 2004 respectively. I wish more people attended these ceremonies. They probably would if the university administration made a better effort to get behind the events (note it's the Corps of Cadets who are doing this). When I was at Texas A&M University THOUSANDS OF STUDENTS turned out to honor our dead, even if it was just an Aggie killed driving home for Christmas. That type of thing says a lot about a university.
