First Annual Max Cleland Alive Day Program

4:00-6:30 pm, Tuesday, April 19, 2005
Master's Hall, Georgia Center, The University of Georgia

The Russell Library was proud to present the first annual Max Cleland Alive Day Program. This program commemorates the day in April 1968 when Cleland survived terrible injury serving the U.S. in Vietnam and honors his strength and courage in overcoming these life-altering injuries by recognizing similar experiences of servicemen and women and those who have worked to support them. This year's Alive Day Award recipient is James M. Mayer, himself a double amputee veteran who works tirelessly to help traumatically injured veterans recover and resume civilian life.
