This presentation, given by Ronald Romanowicz, a 1968 graduate of Pennsylvania Military College, will touch upon the traditions of the university and those who served the nation with gallantry and as exemplary citizens. Romanowicz is the chair of the PMC Museum Committee, a group focused on maintaining the legacy of PMC.

      The OLLI lunchtime speaker series is open to the entire campus community and the general public. Attendees do not need an OLLI membership.
