COMMUNITY NOTEBOOK

A table sits, chair leaned against it, in memory of those missing in action or prisoners of war. The display was dedicated at Western Oregon University’s Veterans Support Center at the Werner University Center on Friday morning. Each item on the table setting represents something, from the bitter lemon on the plate to the upside-down glass. The memorial will stay on display throughout the term.
