A Salute to Veterans

Posted 17 days ago

Bill Bridges, founding professor of Communications and Retired Ohio Air National Guard Chaplain, fondly looks back on his time on campus and shares with us the value and importance of our motto, established by Founding President Stephen W. Nease — “To Seek To Learn Is To Seek To Serve” and its relevance today as well honor our veterans.

Mount Vernon Nazarene University was founded while the Vietnam War was still in full swing in the late 1960s. It was seen by many as almost foolhardy to start a new college at that time since most existing institutions of higher learning were rife with protests, shootings, burnings, and indescribable anger against the war. Veterans returning from the war zone were themselves met consistently with disrespect and name-calling; were spat on, and often personally attacked as if they themselves were responsible for all that was being challenged.
