UNL Veterans' Tribute Fund
The University of Nebraska–Lincoln (UNL) and members of the larger Nebraska community seek to honor veterans and military service members by creating a Veterans Tribute on Memorial Mall, near the Pershing Military and Naval Science building. The idea for additional recognition to complement Memorial Stadium and Memorial Mall has been encouraged by many individuals over the last several years. Last fall, in conjunction with the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, a group of stakeholders was convened to consider options. The proposed project was a result of that collaboration.
The project will create a beautiful and thought-provoking space to celebrate the courage and contributions of members of the military, veterans, and their families. The elements of the design will be general in nature and not specific to any person, branch, or conflict. It will feature glass panel displays depicting moments in a veteran or service members life as well as engraved words on the steps that reflect what it means to serve. Seating, new hardscape and plantings will complement the area. The tribute will occupy the exterior area north of Vine Street and west of 14th Street, from the front entry of Pershing Military and Naval Science building west towards the Coliseum.
