Fall 2017 Corps Review | Back
The Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets honored Veterans Day and the service of our nation’s veterans on Nov. 10, beginning with a remembrance ceremony at the War Memorial. Professor of Aerospace Studies Col. Cameron Torrens, who oversees Air Force ROTC Detachment 875, spoke. That afternoon, the Corps held a special ceremony to add the name of the late Luther James Doss Jr. of the Virginia Tech Class of 1970 to the Honor Pylon. Doss was killed in action on April 30, 1970, in the Binh Dinh Province of South Vietnam while trying to rescue eight soldiers who were surrounded by attacking forces.
