WKU honors veterans, unveils new panel at Guthrie Bell Tower

Bowling Green, KY - Western Kentucky University honored veterans, recognized the 100th anniversary of WKU's ROTC program and unveiled a new granite panel at Guthrie Bell Tower on Friday (Nov. 9) during the annual Veterans Day ceremony.

"Today, we pause to reflect on the freedom that each of us enjoys - freedom that indeed is not free," WKU President Timothy C. Caboni said. "We remember the tremendous cost that has been paid as we recognize the service and sacrifice of our nation's military veterans. What we know is that each of us, in some way, endeavor to make a difference and to make the world a better place. The path that we choose to do so varies greatly, but we know that the price our veterans paid came at a higher cost than most.

"Here, at the Guthrie Bell Tower, we look upon the images of those who sacrificed so much in order for us to live freely. Some gave all, including the tower's namesake, Robert Guthrie. In honor of the 100 year anniversary of the ROTC program at WKU, we are pleased today to unveil a new panel for the Guthrie Bell Tower -- featuring 18 more images symbolic of our military heroes."

Celebrating Our Heroes This Veterans Day

Commentary by Rep. James Comer, First District of Kentucky

I am fortunate to represent a congressional district that many U.S. Military veterans call home. During my time serving in the state legislature, as Agriculture Commissioner and now as the Representative for Kentucky's First District, I have had the privilege of meeting countless men and women who have bravely served our nation. My constituency of active duty and retired servicemembers and veterans have unique backgrounds and stories that reflect the incredible character of Kentucky and our nation as a whole.

This Veterans Day, I am immensely grateful as I reflect on all that our veterans have accomplished for our communities and for our nation.
