FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - For Veterans Day Indiana Tech read the names of all the American servicemen and women who gave their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Campus and community volunteers are reading the names of more than 6,000 men and women who died in operation "Enduring Freedom" and operation "Iraqi Freedom."

The "Remembrance Day National Roll Call" is designed to ensure that military members know that their sacrifices and their fallen comrades are not forgotten.

Nicole Scott of Indiana Tech says, “For one, we have these people to thank for our freedoms, and for two, each of these people is special to someone. They're someone's brother, sister, father, mother, wife, husband... friend."

The reading of the names is expected to continue until about 3 PM.
