“The uniqueness of this year’s program is two-fold, based first on tradition and then on comedic relief,” according to Purdue Calumet’s From Boots to Books Assistant Director Akili Shakur.

“First, we continue to honor traditionally those who have served our nation with our flag raising ceremony,” Shakur said. “While we honor those individuals with tradition, we are also reaching out to a different type of veteran/enlisted member. We never want to forget, but we have to embrace the here and now, and comedy helps us keep things in perspective.”
