UW-Stout to honor 40 military members who died serving the U.S.

MENOMONIE, WI (WTAQ) - UW-Stout is about to honor 40 students, faculty, and staff members who died after serving our country. 

A memorial will be unveiled Friday on the Stout campus at Menomonie. 

It will include individual plaques for the 40 military members -- some of whom died during World War I.

The project began a year ago, when a scholarship was created in honor of Lieutenant John Abrams.  He was a 1962 Stout graduate who died six years later in Vietnam. 

From there, a committee was created to identify all those affiliated with Stout who died after the military service. That includes illnesses in later years, as well as deaths in action.
