We are....Marshall

If you've seen the movie "We Are .... Marshall" you might recognize this memorial to those who perished in the 1970 plane crash from a scene in the movie. A friend of mine who lives in Huntington ( and knew several of the people who died in the crash) took me to see the memorial - -it touched both of us to see the movie ticket stubs placed on the grave markers and monument by those who had seen the movie and came to pay their respects.
You can actually walk over to the side of the grounds there and see the University from the hill - I really came away with a fresh perspective for what this event meant for the people of Huntington; both past and present.
