“She’s developed a pretty interesting legacy for a little girl who only lived 58 minutes.”

That’s how Ohio University alumnus Matt Kittle and his wife, Elena, talk about their daughter, Evie, whose short life has touched the lives of many – all because her parents and her father’s fellow Bobcats were inspired to turn moments of sorrow into opportunities to give to others. https://ohiotoday.org/news/2019/07/08/evie-kittle-award/ #GiveLikeABobcat

Jeff Reed, BSC ‘06, established the Reed Family Scholarship for Excellence in Communication to honor the legacy of the Reed family Bobcats. Reed’s passion for communication is one he shares with his father, Jeff L. Reed, BSJ ‘71, and his late great-uncle, Maj. James W. Reed, BSJ ‘66, who died while serving as an F4 fighter pilot during the Vietnam War. “I hope the students who receive this scholarship are able to continue excelling in their academics and fully experience all the joys of college life,” Reed says.

Iron Mountain supports digitization project with OHIO to preserve Cornelius Ryan Longest Day Collection - ohiotoday news

As the world remembers the sacrifice, service and courage of those who fought and died 75 years ago today on the beaches of Normandy, Ohio University is grateful to Iron Mountain Incorporated, which is beginning a three-part digitization project of documents from world-renowned war correspondent Cornelius Ryan.

OHIO’s Alden Library holds the entire Cornelius Ryan Collection, which includes first-hand accounts and recollections from those who experienced D-Day as both members of the military and civilians.

In helping to digitize these records as a gift-in-kind, Iron Mountain, through its Living Legacy Initiative, ensures that these documents will be preserved and accessible and the stories of these brave men and women will never be forgotten.

https://ohiotoday.org/news/2019/06/06/cornelius-ryan-longest-day-collection/ #DDay #LongestDay #LivingLegacy #LestWeForget

The project makes World War II historical artifacts from the Cornelius Ryan Collection accessible for the first time to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
