The UT Tyler Robert R. Muntz Library is featuring a book and photo display in observance of Veterans Day in the third floor. What started as Armistice Day, to honor the armistice that ended World War I on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918 has evolved to become a day to honor veterans, whether they served during war or during peacetime, living or having made the ultimate sacrifice, for their service to the nation. The following books are currently on display with call numbers. Unless noted otherwise, the regular location for these books is the third floor General Collection stacks.
