How the list was made:

While many remain elusive, for the majority of the men it has proven to be easier than expected. Several factors somewhat unique to the area contributed to this fortunate situation and most of those can be traced back to the college.


Other Vets Who've Called Riley Co. Home

Although this project serves as a memorial to Riley Countians with significant connections to the county from before the war, we must acknowledge the many men and women who served their country and came to settle in the county after their service was through.  As is still the case today, a significant number of service men and women have spent portions of their service at Fort Riley and established connections with the local community during their time here.  Many such service members and their families came to call the county home after their service was over.  Still, other former service members wound up in Riley County to get an education at Kansas State University or to take advantage of local employment opportunities.
