Join Us in Honoring Kansas Veterans!

The Robert J. Dole Institute of Politics at the University of Kansas is proud to announce the Kansas Veterans Virtual Memory Wall, honoring Kansas veterans from World War II to today.
Eligible veterans may have served in any military branch, and possess any title or rank. They must have some connection to Kansas, whether they were born in the state or lived here for just a short while.
Want to be included or to include someone you love? Submit your veteran’s photo
and a brief memory, story, reflection, or other details about their service at:
https://kansasveterans.doleinstitute.org
or stop by Meade Public Library for information and a form to fill out.
The new Kansas Veterans Virtual Memory Wall will open at the Dole Institute in late 2021.
Thank you for your service!
