Submit Photos of WWII Veterans

Coming November 2021: Kansas Veterans Virtual Memory Wall

The Dole Institute’s World War II Memory Wall honors the courageous Kansans, native-born or  permanent residents, who served during World War II either at home or abroad.

The Memory Wall is a permanent installation comprised of the first 1,000 veteran photos submitted to the Dole Institute of Politics for its grand opening in 2003. Since then, we have accepted submissions to our online Veterans Database, which contains over 4,500 World War II Veterans with ties to Kansas.

Submit a veteran profile online for inclusion in the exhibit.

UPDATE July 2021:

We are excited to announce a new initiative honoring Kansas veterans from WWII through today!

Submit your veteran to the Kansas Veterans Virtual Memory Wall by Oct 15, 2021 to be included in the Virtual Memory Wall’s opening in November 2021.

Can’t submit by then? Don’t worry! Submissions will be accepted on an ongoing basis thereafter.

Did you submit a WWII veteran to our original WWII registry?

Verify by consulting this list here or search the existing database. If your veteran is included on this list, they will be automatically be included in the new Kansas Veterans Virtual Memory Wall.

If you would like to add more details to your veteran’s profile for the unveiling of the Virtual Memory Wall, contact the Dole Institute at
