East Carolina University has no shortage of past and present students who have served in all branches of the military. Tuesday, they honored them in the annual Victory Bell Commemorative Service ceremony. The 150-year victory bell which sits outside of the Christenbury Memorial Gym was dedicated back in 1953 and was used to signal every ECU sporting event victory. It was also used on the U.S.S. Broome during World War Two. Retired Navy Captain James Bruner talked to WITN-7 about the importance of remembering students who served in the military. The bell was a gift from the United States Department of the Navy to East Carolina University.
