Sentinels of Freedom
We have begun to gather the names and graduation years from the many alumni who have selflessly served our country to defend our freedom. Please help us complete this list as we prepare to honor them in a permanent way at Mater Dei so that their names will forever be engraved on our great campus.

If you or a fellow alumni have served and are not on this list or if you have corrections to the list, please contact Kathleen Kelly ‘94 at kkelly@materdei.org today. Sentinels of Freedom will be built with the capacity to add names for any future Monarchs. Please check the latest issue of Scarlet & Gray for a rendering of the monument. To submit your update online click here.

We have created a Monarchs in the Military photo album, please send a photo of you in uniform with a short description to kkelly@materdei.org if you would like it added to the album.
