Tribute to the Fallen
is a three-day, nonpartisan event that takes place on UNO's campus. It features
a display of flags that represent every serviceman and servicewoman who has
died in service to the United States in recent years in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The flags are lined evenly on the UNO campus green space, in the area
known as the Pep Bowl, adjacent to UNO's Eppley Administration Building.
Volunteers will take two days to read the name, rank, age and branch of service
of each fallen soldier, sailor, marine and airman over the course of the event.
