RMU Celebrates Constitution Day

On September 17th, Robert Morris faculty, staff, and students gathered in Rogal Chapel to celebrate Constitution Day. Audience members entered the inviting chapel to the sound of patriotic American compositions played by some of Robert Morris’ talented musicians. Supported by the Robert Morris Oral History Center and Daughters of the American Revolution, the event consisted of a panel of several veterans. The veterans shared their stories and roles in their tours, which included the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. Topics of exploration included the idea of brotherhood, the comparison of Iraq and Afghanistan, leadership in the military, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Audience members left with more than just the unique stories of these speakers, but also with a sense of what defending America’s constitution really means.
