NAU opens new room for veterans


Student veterans at a KOTA Territory university have a new place to call their own.

Thursday, veterans of several generations were on hand to cut the ribbon on the Freedom Room at National American University's Rapid City campus.

The room was created as a tribute to military service and place for veterans to gather, study and inspire one another.

Himself a veteran, NAU Senior Campus Director John Terry says he created the room to honor and show gratitude to those who have served their country, "We want to be able to do more than just say we are military friendly, we wanted to show how we support that segment of our student population."

The Freedom Room was dedicated to the memory of veteran and former NAU student Terry Kirkhart, who's family was also in attendance for the ceremony.
