The memorial consists of a 7-foot-by-9-foot black granite plaque inscribed with the names of EKU faculty, students, staff and alumni who died while serving in the Armed Forces. Flanking this plaque are twin bronze wreaths made by students in EKU's Art Department. The memorial also includes a row of flagpoles, five black granite seals representing the Department of Defense and each branch of the armed forces. In 2005, ten granite benches were installed. Organized by the ROTC Alumni Association, the memorial was financed largely through the donation of commemorative brick pavers, which are located at the base of the flagpoles.
