MTSU Veterans Memorial
To honor all of MTSU's veterans in a single monument and increase awareness among the campus community of this institution's nearly a century's worth of service, a committee of faculty, staff, and alumni launched a campaign to construct the MTSU Veterans Memorial. This project sought to preserve the memory of MTSU's tradition of military service, build a physical monument to honor their contribution to our country, and inspire a spirit of service to future generations of "Blue Raiders." In addition to the physical memorial dedicated in 2009, MTSU has also emphasized the collection of wartime experiences from among the MTSU community.
This website acts as a virtual memorial and MTSU is continuing to compile a database of veterans as well as student's wartime remembrances with assistance from the Gore Center, the records office, history books, newspapers, citizen responses, and veterans'/alumni interviews.
If you would like more information, have information you would like to add, or would like to contribute financially to the project, please contact Dr. Derek Frisby in the MTSU History Department or Dr. Hilary Miller in the Veterans and Military Family Center.
