Veterans Memorial Running Tour

Next week the Cornell Veterans Colleague Network Group and Team Red, White and Blue Ithaca will hold the first 5K running tour of Cornell’s Veterans Memorials on Friday December 6th at Noon. We will meet on the East side of Barton Hall between Barton and Teagle. The run is exactly 5K (3.1 Miles) and we’ll go at a moderate pace, keeping the group together and stopping for a brief talk at each memorial.

There is a printable route map @ http://veteransmemorials.cornell.edu/files/2013/11/Cornell-Veterans-Memorials-Tour-2ll0y6m.pdf  or you can see the route online @ http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/fullscreen/324428253/

If the weather gets too bad (it will have to be pretty nasty to cancel!) we’ll update the Team RWB Facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/groups/TeamRWBIthaca/ as well as this event page.

The History Center : Absent Narratives

In honor of Veterans Day The History Center in Tompkins County will host a public program on the latent experiences of American military veterans of soldiers through time. A presentation on the experiences of Civil War soldiers will be given by authors Cathryn Prince and Katie Aldridge. Both authors will dive into these chronicles by examining the difference of first-hand Civil War experiences and the backlash of pitting brother against brother. The discussion will be moderated by History Center director Scott Callan. Both titles will be available for purchase during the event.
