ANDERSON, Ind. —
Last year the academy honored a young marine who died in the line of duty, but this year APA wanted to take a broader approach to the celebration.
“I think a lot of times in the day-to-day life of modern students they are so captivated by the culture of 'me' ... they forget the importance of selflessness, being committed to a goal and understanding that there are things that are bigger than the common needs,” Dorman said.
APA senior Sidney Kocher, 18, said the pictures were a reality check.
“You don’t realize how many people have served until you see all the pictures,” he said. “It was just a vague number until you see everyone.
“I feel like it helps us remember and give thanks so their memories are not forgotten.”
