The new interactive student veterans memorial is almost finished in the entrance to Memorial Union. Karen Johnson, a senior architectural studies student at MU, designed the memorial to honor MU students who have been killed in conflict. The missing man formation is an aerial salute that honors a fallen pilot. Planes fly in formation but leave the fallen pilot's space empty. Johnson said she wanted to represent that idea with the columns in the memorial.
