Vic Rose was selected as Marian University’s October Veteran of the Month.
Rose served as a cook in the Army, and continues to serve his community as a Hospice Hope volunteer. Rose recognizes the unique end-of-life challenges that face other veterans during the end of life journey, and provides a final salute to veterans in the Fond du Lac community.
The Veteran of the Month contest, presented by Marian University and Sunny 97.7/96.1 WTCX, highlights one area veteran each month. Each veteran chosen receives a plaque, an appreciation package from Marian University and Sunny 97.7’s sponsors, including a 3 credit undergraduate class which can be redeemed in the traditional undergraduate program or any of adult undergraduate sessions. In addition, recipients are honored with a monthly ceremony at Marian University, and have the opportunity to share their story on the radio.
