"It was humbling," said Jennifer Gruening, 19, cadet third class of the MU ROTC, after taking her turn at the 22nd Annual Veterans Day Vigil in front of the Boone County Courthouse.

Every hour a cadet honored ROTC alumni serving in active duty by reading their names aloud from a podium in front of the courthouse.
