Mount Mercy University’s Veterans Lounge was given a much-needed facelift thanks to a generous donation from Dean Kent ’79 and his wife, Shirley. Mount Mercy has 60 students who identify as veterans, and the lounge was first established in 2014 to serve as a place for Mount Mercy’s student-veterans to meet up, study and unwind in a private space, away from the bustle of everyday campus life. The Kents, who are no strangers to life in the military, have a special interest in veterans who want to pursue higher education because of opportunities they were given.
This exhibit is part of the Vietnam Series.
This is an opening reception for the exhibit: Visions of Courage: the Legacy of Vietnam.

What single hateful moment leaves an impression -- that tweet, this post, his pic, her laugh -- fleeting actions that seem harmless create ripples of pain for the subject. Ongoing torment scars, breaks, and damages lives. It's happened to us all at some point in time -- the ghost of a playground bully crosses your mind, an insult slips out at work, or someone gets a laugh at your expense in class. Some of us bounce back from the hurt. Some of us never heal. What word will your actions spark in others? We hope it's love.
