Honoring Our Fallen Heroes

As the nation prepares to observe Memorial Day on Monday, we hope that you'll join us and take a few moments to think of the hundreds of thousands of men and women who have given their lives in service to our nation.

To the left is the centerpiece of UNC's own memoriala bronze Book of Names with pull-out "pages" engraved with the names of the 684 UNC alumni known to have perished in service. Blank space has been left to allow for the inclusion of alumni yet to be discovered, as well as those who may be lost in the future. The General Alumni Association also publishes an online edition.
