Veterans Rock should you be listed here?
Visitors to Southwestern's campus nearly all pass the memorial rock
in honor of veterans who served in the Viet Nam and Korea wars. Occasionally,
though, we find that the name of a veteran has been inadvertently overlooked.
If you or someone you know should be listed on this rock and is not
among the names here, please contact the Office of Communications, (316)
229-6343. We will need to know the veteran's name and branch of service.
