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 seeks 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."; Since beginning
this project in the Fall of 2004, we have begun to chronicle MTSU's wartime experiences.
A 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.
A physical monument for campus is currently in the fund-raising and design phase. If you would like more information, have information you would like to add, or would like to contribute financially to the project, please contact Derek Frisby in the MTSU History Department.
