    “Designs of Duty,” an exhibit featuring East Central Illinois veterans and their service-related tattoos, will be on display at Booth Library from Jan. 22 through May 11, 2018.

    “Designs of Duty” tells the stories of seven military veterans who served our country over a 45-year period throughout Asia and Europe. Veterans featured in the exhibit reside in Charleston, Newman, Nokomis, Olney, Shelbyville and Towanda.

    Tattoos are a common symbol among the military, and this exhibit aims to explore the inspiration and meanings behind them, as well as the stories of the veterans themselves. Pride, patriotism and honor are common themes in the artwork chosen by the veterans showcased in “Designs of Duty.”

    Related exhibits on display include military flags; “Symbols of Service,” featuring University of Illinois student veterans; aircraft nose art from World War II to today; Vietnam War helmet graffiti; and literature and poetry during wartime.

    “Designs of Duty” is free and open to the public. For more information visit http://library.eiu.edu/exhibits/designsofduty/.

    Booth Library’s regular hours are 8 a.m. to 1 a.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 1 a.m. Sunday. For more information on the library, visit the website, www.library.eiu.edu; call 581-6072; or find the library on Facebook or Twitter.

    On April 26, 1952, a guard ship, the USS HOBSON, collided with a larger aircraft carrier, the USS WASP. The HOBSON split completely in two and, in less than 4 minutes, descended into the cold Atlantic water. On that dark and moonless night, 175 US Navy Sailors and their Captain were thrust brutally to the bottom of the ocean where they rest in eternal sleep. Sixty-one survivors of the HOBSON were rescued by the heroic efforts of sailors serving on the accompanying ship, the RODMAN, and on the WASP which had a huge gaping hole in her bow. This book is being written at the request of the son of one of the sailors serving on the HOBSON who died that night. This young sailor was one of the 176 who never got to go home, never experienced family again. He didn’t get to hold the child he was expecting nor care for him as he was growing up. Many stories have been shared by the survivors and witnesses of this catastrophe. This is an account of an error in judgment which resulted in a tragedy met by those who serve with competent action, integrity, kindness, and reverence for those who serve.
