Remembering PMC’s Fallen Vietnam Veterans

November 7, 2012

Who were the alumni from PMC who were killed in Vietnam? With Widener’s Veterans Day Remembrance Ceremony scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday in front of Old Main,  I thought it would be appropriate to pay tribute to the nine graduates of Pennsylvania Military College and one from Penn Morton College who did not return.

All ten are included on the web site of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF), the nonprofit organization authorized by the U.S. Congress in 1980 to build a national memorial dedicated to all who served with the U.S. armed forces in the Vietnam War.

Listed below are their names and the year they graduated.  Click on the name to see their listing on the VVMF page.  Seven of the alumni have photos on the VVMF site, but three do not.  I have included photos below of the alumni not pictured on the VVMF page —  for those without photos on this page, click on the name below to see their photos on the VVMF page.  Also, please note that I submitted the photos below to the VVMF site, and expect that they will be posted soon.  —  Sam Starnes, Editor
