Main Page Content
In recognition of Veterans Day, the Memorial Honor Roll at the Iowa Memorial Union (IMU) is now also accessible online. This came about through a joint effort by the IMU, University of Iowa Veterans Services, the UI chapter of Student Veterans of America, the UI Archives, and UI Libraries.
Since its dedication in 1956, the Memorial Honor Roll at the IMU has recognized the students and alumni of the UI who have given their lives in service to the nation as members of the armed forces.
The individuals memorialized on the site are identified by the conflict in which they served: World War I, World War II, Southeast Asian Conflicts, the Korean Conflict, and Operation Enduring Freedom.
The site also provides links to related memorials in Iowa, including the Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum in Waterloo, the Iowa Veterans Cemetery in Van Meter, and the Iowa Gold Star Military Museum in Johnston.
The Memorial Honor Roll is located in Hubbard Commons on the first floor of the IMU, which itself was dedicated in 1926 as a memorial to those who have sacrificed their lives while serving their nation.
