"BSU Says No to 21-Gun Salute to Veterans"

Boise State University (8 NOV 2007)

R.K. Williams, a Vietnam War veteran and longtime Boise State employee who runs the campus veterans services office, said he asked university officials for permission to hold the salute at noon, but they turned him down — twice.
