Veteran Eric Gormly delivers moving address at Appalachian’s Memorial Day ceremony

“For those who fight for it, freedom has a taste the protected will never know.” As Eric Gormly began the keynote address at the 2017 Memorial Day ceremony at Appalachian State University, he quoted these words, which he and his fellow U.S. Marines saw painted on the walls of their barracks at combat training. That was in 2005, when they were preparing to deploy to Iraq for the first time. Gormly is now the coordinator of student veteran services at Appalachian.
