Veterans Project - About

Welcome to the UAlbany Veterans Project Site. This site is designed to honor the sacrifice and contributions of UAlbany veterans and peacekeepers and to keep alive the long history of military service of UAlbany alumni, faculty, staff and students. It is a history that reaches as far back as the Mexican-American War and continues proudly today as UAlbany veterans serve in the defense of freedom around the world.

This UAlbany Veterans Project began in 1999, when a group of dedicated volunteers led by Eunice Whittlesey '44 began to compile a list of UAlbany individuals who have served their country during war or peace time. Their goal was to ensure that the sacrifices and achievements of these veterans were not forgotten.

The project quickly blossomed into a major celebratory event, which took place June 9, 2001. As part of the event, the University unveiled an nine panel, 36-foot Wall of Honor inscribed with the names of all these servicemen and women.

The stories of our UAlbany veterans are full of patriotism, bravery and sacrifice. To view their names, visit our Veterans Archive. You can also view photographs, stories and personal memorabilia. You also are invited to send us material relevant to the project, which we will include in the Archives.
