LWC Community Honor Veterans at Nov. 10 Luncheon

Posted on Thursday, October 29, 2009 [9:11 PM]
COLUMBIA, Ky. -- The Lindsey Wilson College community will hold its annual Veterans Appreciation Luncheon on Tuesday, Nov. 10.
The luncheon begins at 11 a.m. CT on Nov. 10, in Roberta D. Cranmer Dining & Conference Center.
The luncheon is open to veterans and their spouses along with veterans' widows and widowers. There is no charge to veterans and their spouses.
This is the seventh consecutive year Lindsey Wilson has held sponsored the luncheon. 
Sponsored by the Lindsey Wilson National Alumni Association, the purpose of the luncheon purpose "is to recognize and honor everyone in our region who has served our country -- both during times of peace and war," said Vice President for Student Services & Enrollment Management Dean Adams.
This year's luncheon speaker will be Marine veteran Lukas C. Dwelly of Louisville.
Currently director of major gifts for the University of Louisville School of Medicine, Dwelly graduated from Nelson County (Ky.) High School on a Friday night and then reported to the Marine Corps Recruiting Depot in Paris Island, S.C., the following Monday morning.
During his four years of service, Dwelly served as an elite recon Marine and deployed as an infantry squad leader aboard the USS Guam, where he participated in support of military operations in the Bosnia and Herzegovina and in the Persian Gulf.
Toward the end of his enlistment, Dwelly controlled classified materials for the Sixth Marine Regiment, arranging daily briefings for top-ranking military leaders. He obtained the rank of sergeant and was awarded two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, the Good Conduct Medal, two Armed Forces Expeditionary Medals and two letters of Letters of Commendation for operational leadership. Dwelly was also honored as the Non-Commissioned Officer for the Sixth Marine Regiment from October-December 1998.
"We began this luncheon back in 2003 as part of the college's centennial celebration, and it has quickly become one of the more popular events we sponsor for the community each fall," Adams said. "We intentionally do not hold the event on Veterans Day because we don't want to interfere with other community events. For the Lindsey Wilson community, this day gives our students, faculty and staff an opportunity to give thanks to those who have served our country."
The luncheon is free to all veterans, veterans' survivors and a guest. Veterans should RSVP by calling Lindsey Wilson at info@lindsey.edu or (270) 384-8400.
