Veterans' Day 2010

In honor of Veterans' Day The BMCC Library is happy to honor our country's veterans with a special display. Click here to learn more, including info on Veteran's Day events in northeastern Oregon.

 

 

 

Here in the library we've displayed just a few titles from our collection that remember our veteran's experiences as they served the United States. Come in to see these and many, many more titles on U.S. service men and women, military history, the armed forces, and more!
