MSU marked the anniversary of D-Day Tuesday [June 6] with the unveiling of a new exhibit at Mitchell Memorial Library honoring the contributions of Bulldogs during World War II. The exhibit was made possible thanks to a donation from the family of Walter L. Wallace Sr., a 1939 MSU graduate who served as an officer during the war. The exhibit captures the D-Day and WWII experiences of Wallace and fellow alums George Hammer and Kenneth "K.O." Wise. Click here for additional photos from the event.
