The public is invited to attend this year's Gold Star Hall Ceremony at Iowa State University, which will take place on Monday, November 11, 2019, at 3:15 p.m. in the Great Hall of the Memorial Union.
This important ceremony honors our Iowa State students who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for the freedoms that we cherish. Their names are carved into the limestone walls of Gold Star Hall in the Memorial Union, so that we may both remember and honor their service to our country, which merits our deep respect.

We will share photos, memorabilia, and the personal stories of how these Iowa State students became servicemembers. The family and friends of our fallen heroes will be in attendance so that they may see the names of their loved ones
forever memorialized in Gold Star Hall. We will also recognize the 75th anniversary of D-Day and the Battle of the Bulge.
Light refreshments will be available following the ceremony.
Please help honor these fallen Iowa State veterans by planning to attend this ceremony. Remembering these Iowa State students is a way of continuing to honor their service.
