SFA Iraq Day

by Donna McCollum

Three SFA graduates serving our military in Iraq were honored Wednesday with a pair of ceremonies. One in Iraq, one back in Nacogdoches.

The three, Captain Randal Robison, Captain David Taylor and Lt. Noe De La Cruz had the day declared 'Stephen F. Austin Day' at a military camp in Iraq. In return SFA administrators hosted an early morning flag raising on the SFA campus.

Alumni Association Vice President Jim Jeter said, "There's nothing to cling to other than the people that are in the same foxhole with you and if it's a fellow alum it makes it that much better, so we're going to do all we can to support that."

The ceremony honors all SFA graduates who are serving or have ever served in our nation's military.
