Bloomsburg University’s military students and volunteers will once again set up Bloomsburg’s annual September 11 memorial display, honoring veterans that have lost their lives since the terrorist attacks. The group will be placing 7,000 flags on the Academic Quad beginning on Sunday morning. BU’s military students are defined as current and former military peronnel, their spouses and dependents, and participants in the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC). On Monday, Sept. 11, there will be four moments of silence to commemorate the four planes crashing on Sept. 11, 2001.
