History turns into heritage, heritage turns into culture. Culture is what brings us together as a community.”

Joseph Eugene Daley’s name was added to the memorial after researchers discovered he was enrolled in Northeastern’s School of Law but left early to join the Army during World War I, before his death in Germany in 1918.

That’s the mission and purpose of this research. It is an unusual mission, because universities, as you know, shy away from focusing on this type of research, and we’re very proud we have focused on it.”

الخيارات الثنائية ائحة الاتحاد الأوروبي Paul Scherlek, a fourth-year finance major and president of Northeastern’s Student Veterans Organization, spoke about the success of veteran students, who have a higher average GPA than civilian students.

“As service members, we ran into the darkness with our heads held high. We were given too much responsibility too young, with too little information, and we were asked to do the impossible,” Scherlek said. “As veterans, we bring that same sense of discipline to universities across the country.”

The ceremony concluded with ROTC cadets laying a wreath on the Veterans Memorial to honor all Northeastern community members who have served.
