Most importantly, with the current War on Terrorism being fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, this landmark -- donated through the generosity of 1938 G SC graduate, the late Air Force General Vorley M. Rexroad-- makes for an ideal place for alumni, students, faculty, and the general public to reflect on these currently trying times for freedom everywhere. When you have a minute to spare during the 2004 Homecoming, why not visit this GSC shrine and be thankful for these brave students named here who gave their lives for us!
