UNL Veterans' Tribute

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln seeks to honor and celebrate veterans and military service members by creating a Veterans’ Tribute on Memorial Mall, near the Pershing Military and Naval Science Building. The design will feature glass panels depicting moments in a veteran or service member’s life, including training, deployment, family life, and humanitarian missions. 

The development of the Tribute has reached an important juncture, in which the design team is ready to begin collecting stories, memories, and experiences to be used as quotes on the glass panels. Learn more and share your story!

A Place for All to Reflect All members of the UNL community and visitors will experience the space as they walk down Memorial Mall. It will be an enduring reminder of the sacrifices, courage and dedication — past, present and future — of the brave men and women who serve our country.  This is not a memorial, but rather a constant reminder of the heroes who walk among us, a tribute to the men and women from our community willing to sacrifice for something larger than themselves. And what better place for it to rest than at the heart and core of the UNL community.  John Hilgert, ‘86 Captain, U.S. Army, 1989-92
