  • Miami's 'Service Flag' hangs from the stage of Hall Auditorium in late 1917. Each star represented one member of the armed forces. Additional stars were added weekly, and 11 gold stars were added over time to represent those who died in combat. CONTRIBUTED BY MIAMI UNIVERSITY ARCHIVES

These are the names of Miami University students and alumni who have died in wars since the university's founding. This list contains 235 fallen soldiers, including 11 who were declared missing during World War II, and one soldier who was killed by foreign forces not during a war. This list is not comprehensive, as Miami did not become aware of every student who died.
