On this #MemorialDay, we honor and remember those who courageously gave their lives for our country. 🇺🇸 

Did you know the @PurdueMemorialUnion was named to recognize the thousands of Boilermakers who enlisted in World War I? The black and gold tile cross in the center of the Great Hall was laid to honor and remember the 67 Purdue students who gave their lives in the war. Since then, countless Boilermakers have gone on to fight for our country, and their memory is made permanent within the walls of the Great Hall.
