Vietnam Memorial


On Friday, October 17th the Miami East Local School District and Athletic Department will recognize and honor the Miami East Graduates who gave their lives for their country in the Vietnam War. Those graduates included:
David Mahan, James Tasker, Steve Gundolf , George Anderson, Kenneth Vore
In addition, the District will recognize all Veterans in attendance and the Miami East High School Band will perform a Patriotic Halftime show.
In 1999, the District and the Troy Post of the VFW sought to recognize and honor those from Miami East who had lost their lives in the Vietnam War. In an unfortunate oversight, the name of Kenneth Vore was omitted. On October 17th, the Vore family, and Kenneth will be recognized, along with all veterans in attendance at the football game. The Troy Post VFW along with the Amvets will be participating in the recognition ceremony. Veterans in attendance that evening are asked to stand on the track in front of the home stands beginning at 7:10 p.m. to be recognized.
