Air Force ROTC member Morgan Daugherty ’25 plants a tiny American flag on Friday on McKeldin Mall in honor of a life lost during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The TerpVets organization and the Office of Veteran Student Life planned and created the display of 3,000 flags, a campus tradition known as Operation Stick-It. It will remain up through Monday.
