Duke War Memorials
This completed project sought to update the War Memorials on the campus of Duke University in order to honor those alums who lost their lives while on active duty in the military.  A two-year process of searching records databases produced a list of individuals whose names were enshrined in plaques on a retaining wall in Memorial Court next to the Duke Chapel in fall of 2009.  Secretary of the US Dept. of Veterans Affairs - Gen. Eric Shinseki - presided over a ceremony dedicating the plaques.
