Veterans Day 2007...

Some stories I have heard about World War II and Slippery Rock include German prisoners of war held briefly in West Hall and a basketball team consisting of the only five guys still in school. An art professor of the time put together a special newsletter, The Victory Bell, that he sent to SR students who were in the service. The following two headlines come from the Slippery Rock Rocket online and provide a fascinating look at a different era:

Air Force cadets land at Slippery Rock
Ex-GI's return to Slippery Rock
