Students design Palau memorial

Otis in the News

A group of students and faculty traveled to the small archipelago of Palau, in the western Pacific Ocean, this summer. In 2011, Otis began a design project to commemorate those Palauns who lost their lives serving in the U.S. military from WWII to the present. Since 1994, Palau has been a U.S. Protectorate, receiving defense funding and social services. More Palauns per capita serve in the U.S. military than any state or protectorate.
The Freedom Memorial design represents the 16 states of Palau, arranged in a pattern that resembles a conch shell, which symbolizes calling people home or together.
