WEBSTER GROVES, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

A veteran who spent his life caring for his fellow service members was honored at Webster University Friday.

The school has renamed its veterans' center in honor of former Marine Tom Palozola.

Palozola completed multiple tours overseas before returning home and finishing his bachelor's degree at Webster. He worked to open the veterans' center on Webster's campus.

Palozola's family said they were touched by the university choosing to honor their loved one.

Palozola was working on his master's degree when he lost his life earlier this year.
