RECOGNIZING VIETNAM VETERANS


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.

If you know of anyone whose name is not on the list and should be, please contact David O’Brien at dobrien@pp.k12.mn.us or Fred Liljegren at 218-338-6173. Thank you for any information you may provide!
