to attend 'Military Salute Day'

(FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo.)— Fifty soldiers, sailors and airmen from Fort Leonard Wood will travel to Columbia College in Columbia, Mo. on Saturday, Jan. 24 to see a pair of Cougar basketball games as part of the athletic department's Military Salute Day. Between games, the service members will be invited to a reception and lunch. A couple of Sergeants-Major will also travel from Fort Leonard Wood to participate in the activities.
“With everything the members of our armed forces do for us, for all the sacrifices they make, I’m very proud that Columbia College is doing something like this to show our appreciation,” said Dr. David L. King, director of the Columbia College campus at Fort Leonard Wood. “We’re really indebted to Lou Cruz, a member of the Education Services Officer’s staff at the Truman Education Center. She did the lion's share of the work in coordinating with the military units to get these soldiers, sailors and airmen lined up for the trip.”
Columbia College has had a campus at Fort Leonard Wood for more than 30 years and continues to serve working adults and military students in the area.
Columbia College, a private, nonprofit institution founded in 1851 in Columbia, Mo., educates 25,000 students each year and has more than 61,000 alumni worldwide.
