Recognition for Ute servicemen

Southern Ute Vietnam veteran, Rod Grove, replaces a soldier’s name plate, which now bears an engraved cross next to their surname. The crosses are symbolic, denoting those soldiers and servicemen that have passed on. Grove has been diligently updating the engraved name plates since the ornate memorial was first established in the Hall of Warriors, around the same time as the Leonard C. Burch building was first dedicated. The Ute veterans, both living and deceased, are arranged chronologically by the conflict in which thy served, dating back as far as WWI.
