About 500 Notre Dame alumni gave their lives for their country and peace in World War II, Korea and Vietnam
In memorializing them, we join our prayers to their supreme sacrifice as we inscribe this column
Pro Patria et Pace
For Our Country and Peace
This is our prayer that all living Notre Dame men and women dedicate themselves to the service of their country and world peace.
Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C.,
President, University of Notre Dame, 1986 A.D.
