.N I the most critical time oi our history over llU alumni, former students, and students, went
into the armed forces to try and maintain the way of life to which we had become accustomed. The
names on the four plaques of honor, in our main hall, represent these boys, girls, men and women
who served in the ranks of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Air Force, Coast Guard, Wacs, Waves,
Waafs, American Field Service, and the Red Cross.
Also among those who sorvod in the nation's armed forces are the following teachers who returned
to this school after fulfilling their pledge to their country: Bernard Greeson, Navy, William Ketelaar,
Navy, l. D. Logsdon, Navy, Henry Potts, Navy, Chester Rinlca, Marines, Carl Seiferts, Navy, Berton
Swan, Army, Kurt Zander, Army, Helen Garrett, Red Cross, Anita Wachs, Wacs.
The mere listing of names is truly small tribute to the men and women whose actions can be traced
through almost every phase of the war: From the smoking ruins of Pearl Harbor to the bloody beaches
of Salerno, from the disheartening Battle of the Bulge to the ever remembered flag raising at Iwo lima,
and from the victorious surge through Germany to the signing of the peace treaty on the battleship
Missouri. Their sacrifices will be remembered long after these plaques no longer exist.
Following each graduation a number oi boys enter into the services of their country. These boys
are not engaged in war-time duties but rather, are the needed forces of a nation which wants to secure
the peace for which World Wari lf was fought. This peacetime force must be kept strong enough to
ward oft any opposing force that would try to liamper the worlds peace.
Those who served in the past wars did what was in their power to bring us that peace which we
are now enjoying. lt is up to us to make this peace a lasting one for the coming generations.

Our boys who gave their lives in World War II
left a heritage which we cherish. They fou,Qht that
liberty might have a re-birth in all the world. They
helievecl that the brotherhood of man was ll def-
inite possibility. They demonstrated that freedom
was more precious than any material gain. They
flied that we might continue to live in a world in
which we are free to determine our own destiny.
We must not fail to build upon their heritage rr
world which is worthy of their great sacrifice.
