BHSU Vets Club pays tribute to fellow soldiers T
he Black Hills State Vets Club honored its fellow soldiers during this year's Swarm Day Parade by replicating its winning
entry from 1969.
At 10 a.m. on Oct. 15, 1969, everything came to a stop on college campuses across the United States in protest to our country's commitment in Vietnam. The demonstration, known as Moratorium Day, was believed to be one of the largest peace initiatives in U.S. history. At that same moment, the BH Vets Club released 10,000 leaflets from an airplane stating the message "America - Love It or Leave It!" The leaflets covered the entire BHSU campus. Time magazine covered this national event, and the Black Hills State Vets Club was mentioned in their October 24, 1969, issue. The Swarm Day 2009 float was dedicated in memory of BH Vets Club members who have lost their lives over the past 40 years.
