DuBois, PA – There’s a new monument on the Penn State DuBois campus, honoring the students who have served, are serving, or will serve in the armed forces.

The black granite monument is shaped like a keystone, the symbol of Pennsylvania, and features the seals of all five branches of the military. It stands underneath the flagpole on the campus.

The Penn State DuBois Veterans Club was inspired by similar monuments on other campuses. With the approval from Penn State DuBois, they began raising money through donations and fundraisers like a 5K.
