The PPHS History Club is looking to find the names of Vietnam veterans not already listed on the plaque in the high school, which is dedicated to all those who attended Parkers Prairie High School and also served in the Vietnam War. We are also looking for the names of nurses who served in the Vietnam War and attended PPHS. Unfortunately, not all of the names were put on the plaque, and we are looking to fix that. As of now, the History Club knows of two Vietnam veterans who are not listed: Leon Hansen and George Woida. The names listed below are all those who are currently on the plaque. If you know of anyone whose name is not on the list and should be, please contact David O’Brien at firstname.lastname@example.org or Fred Liljegren at 218-338-6173. Keep in mind that the veteran does not necessarily need to have graduated from PPHS, only to have attended. Thank you for any information you may provide!
