Long Description:
It is on the southeast side of campus, directly east of All Faiths Chapel. In 1986, students launched a successful $22,000 fundraising campaign for the memorial. Construction began in August 1989 and the memorial was dedicated in November 1989.

The memorial features two semicircular limestone walls that are 20 feet in diameter. One of the walls bears the engraved names of 42 students who died in the war or who are missing in action. The other wall bears an inscribed quote from Abraham Lincoln. Benches and an illuminated flagpole rise in the memorial's center. Scott Enns, a 1985 architecture graduate from Wichita, designed the memorial.
