Honoring Veteran's Day

The Ohio State University Marching Band is joined by the Ohio State Alumni Band
 to honor the armed forces.

The Newark Earthworks Center would like to 
thank and honor our members of the armed forces 
for their dedicated service. 

"The service and sacrifice of Native American veterans spans nearly two and a half centuries of American History. American Indians have served in the U.S. Armed Forces in every major conflict since the Revolutionary War and in greater numbers per capita than any other ethnic group-facts unknown to many Americans.

During World War II, over 44,000 Native Americans served in the U.S. military. Hundreds of Navajo, Comanche and other Native language speakers-Code Talker-played a crucial role. More than 42,000 Native American served during the Vietnam War as well. Today, the U.S. Department of Defense estimates more than 24,000 American Indian and Alaska Native men and women are on active duty, and more that 150,000 veterans self-identity as American Indian or Alaska Native."
