The Medal of Honor Memorial Taskforce was created in order to see out the mission of a Student Senate resolution that called for the development of a Memorial that would honor all of the alumni of the University of Washington who have been awarded the Medal of Honor. This resolution R-12-26 was written by Andrew P.D.G. Everett, as a result of the failure of a resolution in the Student Senate that would commemorate Colonel Gregory "Pappy" Boyington.[1] The failed resolution stirred up quite a Controversy.

The Taskforce was created in October when the BOD passed Board Bill 4.03, AN ACT TO: To Create the Medal of Honor Resolution Task Force.

In 2009, Sarah Round submitted R-16-7: A Resolution Commending Student Leaders and Alumni on the Medal of Honor Memorial on November 4, 2009, which was passed by the ASUW Senate on November 17, 2009, and the Board of Directors on November 19, 2009.


Members of the MOH Memorial Taskforce




The SAO Advisor for the MOH Memorial Taskforce was Philip J. Hunt for the duration of the Taskforce's existence.


In order to be the most effective and efficient in regards to fundraising, the MOH Taskforce immediately acquired the assistance of the UW Foundation, particularly Renee Fricke.

In conjunction with the Visions of Valor Exhibit that came to campus, the MOH Memorial Taskforce was able to raise over $125,000 in private donations for the project.
