USC Auxiliary Services hosted an exclusive hard-hat tour of the L.A. Memorial Coliseum for its military veteran staff members last week, led by Dan Stimmler (VP of Auxiliary Services and COO of the Coliseum) and Joe Furin (General Manager of the Coliseum). The veterans were able to view areas that have only been accessed by the construction crew, architects, and other officials close to the project.

The Coliseum is a historic landmark and memorial to all who served in the Armed Forces during World War I. Learning about the history of the Coliseum and showcasing the university’s commitment to its restoration and modernization plans allowed our current generation of veterans to experience and connect with the legacy.

Veterans from USC Auxiliary Services who attended this event included:

Derek Callahan
Francesca Lafayette
Gabe Badillo
Gary Champagne
Hector Jimenez
Hernan Salazar
Kris Klinger
Louis Rodriguez
Douglas Lee
Marie Muldrew-Buchanan
Raymond Cook Jr.
