Most of the books included in this year’s Memorial Day research guide relate to the American Vietnam War memorialization.

This year, we created a public memorial in Bird library in which we endeavored to honor three Syracuse University alumni who made the ultimate sacrifice in their service: Major Michael Dimitri Balamoti ’60 (United States Air Force; Laos), a cherished student and fraternity brother; First Lieutenant James Nathaniel Lyons ’02 (United States Army; Iraq); and Pfc Griswald Mills Hill Jr. ’49 (United States Marine Corp; Korea). Syracuse University remains dedicated to uncovering the stories of all its alumni who have given their lives to service.
