A wreath and Gold Star banner stand inside the Memorial Union's Gold Star Hall Nov. 7 as visitors look over exhibits honoring four fallen soldiers who attended or graduated from Iowa State. The four, three of whom served in Vietnam and one during World War II, were remembered through stories and photos during a ceremony in the adjacent Great Hall. Their names have been in the limestone walls of Gold Star Hall since 1984. The gold star represents an individual killed in action while serving in the U.S. military.

Friday is the federal Veterans Day holiday; Veterans Week events on campus continue through Friday.
