Cut Short is a permanent outdoor memorial garden outside the Veterans’ Dormitory that consists of twenty-one 6 x 6-inch white posts placed in lines like the white crosses of Arlington National Cemetery. Posts are cut in various lengths representing those who served and returned home, and those whose lives have been cut short. A memorial plaque can be purchased for any veteran, both those who returned home and for those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Show your support for the Veteran’s Memorial Project by honoring a family member or friend who has served by purchasing a 3.5 x 5 engraved plaque for $100 that will be placed on one of the white posts. Plaques can be purchased for those who are still living or for those who have passed.
This outdoor memorial garden is open to the public and we encourage those in the community to visit. Since the garden is located next to our Veteran’s Dormitory we ask that you please respect the space as there are people living in the dormitory.
