Memorial Flag Pavilion & War Memorial

Dedicated in 2004, the Robert L. Marchman III Memorial Flag Pavilion is located on the campus of Sigma Nu’s Headquarters in Lexington, Virginia.  The pavilion was created to honor all American and Canadian Sigma Nu servicemen.  It was named in honor of Past Regent and veteran Robert L. Marchman III (Emory).  The flag pavilion connects two phases of the Pathway of Honor.  Engraved bricks to honor Sigma Nu veterans may be obtained through a contribution to the Sigma Nu Educational Foundation.

Plans for currently underway for a War Memorial that would be an expansion of the flag pavilion.  The War Memorial would be a means of paying tribute to the 700+ brothers who were killed in action. We have compiled a comprehensive listing of our brothers who have fallen in battle. In addition, a remembrance “album” or database is planned to provide information on all our fallen brothers and available to anyone visiting Headquarters.  A photograph and description of the circumstances of each honoree’s death will be included. 

Brother J. Harry Shannon (Samford & Alabama) made a generous contribution which has been matched.  But additional funding is required to allow the construction and completion of the War Memorial by November 11, 2018, the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.  The Sigma Nu Educational Foundation invites you to support the efforts to honor our fallen heroes.  It’s the least we can do for these brothers who gave their all on the battlefield.  They have done their duty—to remember and honor them is ours.

Count Me In…

As a donor to Sigma Nu’s efforts to appropriately honor brothers who sacrificed their lives in defense of their country with the War Memorial at Headquarters in Lexington, Virginia.
