The East High Alumni Page presents:
 
 
 

A memorial to East High alumni who gave their lives in service
to the United States of America as members of its military.

If you know any alumnus who should be included here, please send as much information about his/her East High association, her/his service history, and death as you can. Submissions must be verified before being listed here*.

One word appears on the crest of East High School: Honor. Fewer things could be more honorable than serving others, and even more so in a role in which one risks life and limb for the others' welfare. We dedicate this page to East High alumni who did so and gave their lives in such honorable service.
