The Memorial Chapel is a tribute from alumni and friends to those sons of Virginia Tech who made the supreme sacrifice in our nation’s wars. It is a shrine to fortify education with worship and inspiration. It was conceived as a central campus structure, giving visual evidence of the ethical standards that are traditional at Virginia Tech and are based upon the honor system. It is dedicated to those who gave their all; yet it is designed to inspire the living, especially the Virginia Tech graduates of the future. To carry out this idea, the Memorial has two parts at different levels. The foundation level is the Chapel, opening onto the drill field. The upper level is Memorial Court, terminus for the Mall. A walkway and steps connect the levels. Thus, the lower level illustrates the axiom that God is the foundation on which to build a useful and full life. The walkway and steps leading from the Chapel to Memorial Court have their own significance. They represent the path to be followed in life, ever climbing toward the goal of service in God’s plan. Memorial Court grows out of the Chapel. Its eight massive pylons, reaching upward, represent stability and aspiration. They carry the names of our war dead and on each is a sculptured figure. Between the last two pylons is a cenotaph – a monument honoring those buried elsewhere. Carved in the top step of the court are these words, “THAT I MAY SERVE”, a free translation of the Latin motto, “UT Prosim”. From Virginia Tech Homepage

*Artist’s Note: Several of these prints framed, were donated to the families of TECH’S FALLEN HEROES. It is my heart-felt honor and privilege to do this.
