The Fallen: Garfield Students That Did Not Return
Serving in all branches of the military, Garfield students gave their lives so that future generations would remain free. These Garfieldians fought and died in such places as Pearl Harbor, the Philippines, France, the Mediterranean, Suez Canal, Belgium, Germany, Alaska, China, and the skies over Europe and Pacific. Furthermore, with the training being so hard and real, there were those who died here in the United States. They served aboard such ships as the USS Arizona, USS Oklahoma, USS Indianapolis, USS Pensacola, USS Astoria, USS Hull and USS Johnston. They were a part of such battles as Iwo Jima, Okinawa, Guam, Battle of the Bulge, Operation Market Garden, D-Day and so many others. For some of these Garfield students, their bodies were never recovered – never returned.
