Dear Stanford community,

Every year on Memorial Day, we honor those who have given their lives to protect the freedoms we cherish.

At this time, we pause to remember the 486 members of the Stanford community who died in service to our country. We pay special tribute to them in Memorial Auditorium with six plaques bearing their names. While we are unable to visit MemAud at this time because of the pandemic, we can reflect on the sacrifices they have made.

Stanford is proud of its vibrant military community, both past and present. Many veterans, dependents of veterans, and ROTC students are currently studying here as graduate and undergraduate students, and as visiting fellows at the Center for International Security and Cooperation and the Hoover Institution. And many Stanford alumni have served and continue to serve proudly in our armed forces.

Memorial Day reminds us that millions of Americans have fought and died for the peace and liberty we enjoy in this country. Please join us in taking some time to remember and honor our fallen soldiers and their ultimate sacrifice to serve our country. We express our lasting gratitude to all of them.

In appreciation,

Marc Tessier-Lavigne 
President 

Persis Drell
Provost
