Below are excerpts from the CSU-Pueblo TODAY article “Traveling event honors military for their services” by Bill Dagendesh.

The Cost of Freedom tribute, a four-day event that honors and remembers our uniformed sons and daughters who have served and are serving our country, is on display until Sunday, Oct. 3 on the campus grounds at CSU-Pueblo.

The American Veterans Traveling Tribute is conducting the event, which opened to the public on Wednesday. The AVTT is a group of military veterans who travel the country to honor, respect and remember those who served their country, and pay special tribute to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
