Veterans and their families gathered at the War Memorial Tuesday for a celebration and honoring of their service. Carol Anne Wood is the grandmother of a woman currently serving in the U-S Army. She would write poems for her granddaughter and the platoon, and quickly became known as the platoon grandmother.
Unfortunately not all service members are able to return to their families and communities. A special table was set up to honor those Missing in Action or who are Prisoners of War.
Syracuse basketball (1-0) takes on the Fordham Rams (1-0) Tuesday night inside the Carrier Dome in its 2nd regular season contest. The Orange comes off an 82-60 win over Cornell in its season opener. Eighth-ranked SU was led by Trevor Cooney, who netted a career-high 27 points.
After his career game, Cooney admitted that it was easier to play knowing that he was staying in the game even if he missed one or two shots.
Syracuse (5-4, 3-2) took care of Maryland (5-4, 1-4) at Byrd Stadium 20-3 to improve to above .500 for the first time in the Scott Shafer era.
The Orange started the game on an opening 16 play, 80 yard touchdown drive capped off by a Jerome Smith one yard touchdown run. Quarterback, Terrel Hunt was a perfect 6 for 6 with 49 yards on the drive. The opening drive was the only touchdown either team scored in the first half.
