In Memory of Those Who Served...

In August of 2016 a Vietnam Memorial was erected by the Garinger Foundation honoring those alumni who were Killed In Action. Over the next several newsletters, we take a look at each of those young men as remembered by Larry Walker, class of '64. Today we honor their memory by providing Garinger students educational opportunities and assisting them in making dreams come true.
