Gold Star Aggies

UC Davis is honoring its war casualties in a beautiful new way, The Gold Star Aggies Wall is in the newly remodeled Memorial Union, dedicated in 1955 as a memorial to Aggies lost in war. Their names have always been on display in the Memorial Union — first on nameplates on the mantle of the fireplace in Griffin Lounge, then engraved on stainless-steel panels on a wall to the rear of the fireplace. Now those 135 names are in a much more prominent location: the East Wing hallway. The Golden Memory Book is there, too, in a display case, alongside a pair of touch-screen monitors where people can call up pages from UC Davis' Golden Memory Book to read about our fallen soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines, and see their pictures.
