This evening, running from 6 – 8 p.m. in Butler, Columbia is unveiling a war memorial to “honor those Columbians who gave their lives in service to the United States.” The memorial will include a plaque (seen at right) in the entrance to Butler, and an interactive kiosk that will allow students to see the names of Columbians who have fallen while serving in the armed forces.

The kiosk’s site is available online as well, including a list of deceased, brief entries on Columbia’s involvement with American wars, and a list of military-related ‘points of interest’ on campus. Bwog highly recommends it for procrastination.
