The Ruptured Duck is a patch and lapel pin given to Honorably Discharged military personnel which started during WWI. A lit up sign bearing the same name hung in Veterans Memorial Auditorium above a concession stand as one of the buildings’ many tributes to military. Once the building was renovated, the sign was taken down. Building Engineer Steve Frantz explains how the piece of history was preserved and where it hangs today!
