Sign up to read names on Veterans Day

On Nov. 11, Veterans Day, The Student Veterans Association in collaboration with the Veterans Resource Center will conduct a roll call of the 6,836 lives lost during Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. It will start at 6 a.m. with the intention of finishing just prior to the commencement of our Veteran’s Day ceremony at 1:30 p.m. The 192 service members who claimed North Carolina as home will be read between 1:20 and 1:35 p.m.

As this task is immense and also very emotional, it will require at least 44 readers. We are reaching out to the campus community for your assistance in honoring our fallen service members. Contact Amber Mathwig at ammathwi@uncg.edu with any further questions. She will be populating the final reader sheet based on the order responses are received.

– Each time slot will require two people.
– Each time slot will be given approximately 300 names to read.
– The names need to be read every 4 seconds in order to complete by 1:35 pm.
– Amber Mathwig will provide the names list for your time slot no later than Nov. 6 to ensure you can review for pronunciation.
– All names will be written as the person’s military title, full name and age.
