It's almost time for preseason college football rankings and while WSU won't be ranked this year, that wasn't always the case.

WSU's Jason Krump wrote a series of Memorial Day stories in 2007 so we revisit them today. They are 15 parts and they are all worth a read, or a re-read.
Located at the center of the Washington State University campus is the WSU Veterans Memorial. On the memorial are engraved the names of Washington State students, faculty, and staff who served their country in violent conflicts that took place far from the peace and tranquility of the Palouse. Each name represents a life sacrificed either in World War I, World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Persian Gulf War or the Global War on Terrorism.
Behind each name is a story.
WSU wrapped up its season with a 7-6 loss to Oregon State.
