The War Memorial Wall Project

Footfalls, an original painting by Rick Herter. The work was commissioned by the AOG in 1992 and subsequently purchased by the class of 1960 for display in Doolittle Hall.


The War Memorial Wall contains names of all graduates killed as a result of hostile action during a state of military conflict. Before this project, there was no central location for information about these graduates.

With support from The Friends, the Association of Graduates, and the Academy Library, a team of graduates collected, scanned, electronically filed and indexed more than 35,000+ pages of written and photographic documentation.
