Originating during World War I, the Service Flag is a blue star on a white field with a red border. Families would display the Service Flag in their front window to show that an immediate family member was serving in the military. If that loved one died, the blue star was replaced by a gold star, allowing others to see the sacrifice that family made in protecting our country.
The Oregon State University Military and Veteran Resource Center has attempted to create a database of all honored OSU alumni who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Created over the course of a year through extensive cross platform research, these are the Beavers who gave their lives for our freedom.
The Gold Star Project member database may be searched by member name or class year.
Filters can also be applied for military ranks and/or conflicts.
The displayed members may be sorted in ascending or descending order of last name, conflict, or class year.
PFC Struve was KIA during combat in Europe during WWII.
