Andrew Nelson, Eugene Carney and Eugene Bolger were all killed in action. Families of the fallen were there, and got letters from current students honoring their loved ones.

“I think that the community here has been very supportive. The Moorhead community and just the people that we've gotten to know both through my work and through my children being in school.”

The American Legion and the Moorhead Knights of Columbus helped fund the memorial.
