just so you know

Joyce Kilmer was a poet and valiant man, born the same year as our ClockTower.

He died at only 31, shot in the head by a sniper while scouting for his comrades, fighting World War I in France.

For his valor he was awarded the Croix de Guerre, the War Cross by a grateful French Republic.

In 1918 Joyce Kilmer left a wife, five young children,
 and one very well-loved verse.
