CHS Class of ’66 Scholarship Auction Fundraiser
IT’S TIME TO GIVE BACK!
Many of us Falcons from fifty years ago, feel that Clearfield High School helped us “find our wings” to reach our goals. If you’ve felt this way and wondered how you could pay it forward, this is the chance you’ve been looking for!
WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
A Clearfield High School Class of 1966 Scholarship Fund has been endowed for the purpose of awarding a scholarship to a CHS student graduating in 2017. We want to give back, in the name of our class, and to encourage current students to work hard for their future dreams. Depending on how much is raised and willingness to continue support, it may be possible to make this a perpetual scholarship. Together we can make a difference to someone who wants to pursue a post-secondary education but may not have the means to do so.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Be creative in considering what you can do to help a future student find his/her wings.

I just looked at Larry Anderson's
tribute to our fallen heroes.
It was sad but also very inspiring.
I want to take this time to thank Larry.
I recommend you look at the post too.
A link is located below on this page.
I also want to thank our fallen heroes and
their families for sacrifices made...

PRESENTED BY LARRY ANDERSON
...CLASS OF '68
Marilee Kirkbride Martin of the Class of '66 will be present Tuesday as her father receives the Congressional Gold Medal posthumously on Tuesday. A well-deserved honor for a quiet, humble hero.
SEE HISTORY AND VIDEOS FOR "ANY" YEAR...
Be sure to read "The Buddies of Midvale "Utah" paragraph 5 below.
A little history most people will never know. Interesting Veterans Statistics off the Vietnam Memorial Wall.
There are 58,267 names now listed on that polished black wall, including those added in 2010. The names are arranged in the order in which they were taken from us by date and within each date the names are alphabetized. It is hard to believe it is 36 years since the last casualties.
The first known casualty was Richard B. Fitzgibbon, of North Weymouth, Mass. Listed by the U.S. Department of Defense as having been killed on June 8, 1956. His name is listed on the Wall with that of his son, Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Richard B. Fitzgibbon III, who was killed on Sept. 7, 1965.
There are three sets of fathers and sons on the Wall. 39,996 on the Wall were just 22 or younger. 8,283 were just 19 years old. The largest age group, 33,103 were 18 years old. 12 soldiers on the Wall were 17 years old. 5 soldiers on the Wall were 16 years old. One soldier, PFC Dan Bullock was only 15 years old. 997 soldiers were killed on their first day in Vietnam. 1,448 soldiers were killed on their last day in Vietnam. 31 sets of brothers are on the Wall. 31 sets of parents lost two of their sons. 54 soldiers attended Thomas Edison High School in Philadelphia. I wonder why so many from one school? 8 Women are on the Wall. Nursing the wounded. 244 soldiers were awarded the Medal of Honor during the Vietnam War; 153 of them are on the Wall. Beallsville, Ohio with a population of 475 lost 6 of her sons. West Virginia had the highest casualty rate per capita in the nation. There are 711 West Virginians on the Wall. The Marines of Morenci - They led some of the scrappiest high school football and basketball teams that the little Arizona copper town of Morenci (pop. 5,058) had ever known and cheered. They enjoyed roaring beer busts. In quieter moments, they rode horses along the Coronado Trail, stalked deer in the Apache National Forest. And in the patriotic camaraderie typical of Morenci's mining families, the nine graduates of Morenci High enlisted as a group in the Marine Corps. Their service began on Independence Day, 1966. Only 3 returned home.
The Buddies of Midvale - LeRoy Tafoya, Jimmy Martinez, Tom Gonzales were all boyhood friends and lived on three consecutive streets in Midvale, Utah on Fifth, Sixth and Seventh avenues. They lived only a few yards apart. They played ball at the adjacent sandlot ball field. And they all went to Vietnam. In a span of 16 dark days in late 1967, all three would be killed. LeRoy was killed on Wednesday, Nov. 22, the fourth anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination. Jimmy died less than 24 hours later on Thanksgiving Day. Tom was shot dead assaulting the enemy on Dec. 7, Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.
The most casualty deaths for a single day was on January 31, 1968 - 245 deaths. The most casualty deaths for a single month was May 1968 - 2,415 casualties were incurred.
For most Americans who read this, they will only see the numbers that the Vietnam War created. To those of us who survived the war, and to the families of those who did not, we see the faces, we feel the pain that these numbers created.
We are, until we too pass away, haunted with these numbers, because they were our friends, fathers, husbands, brothers, wives, sons and daughters.
There are no noble wars, just noble warriors.
Wednesday November 11, 2009 the Clearfield High School AFJROTC held its annual Veteran's Day Ceremony.
It took place at 7:45 a.m. on the north end of the Clearfield High football field. A large group of students, teachers and Administrators were there to support our AFJROTC members. This year's ceremony paid a special tribute to eleven former CHS students who gave the ultimate sacrifice. The CHS Class of 1968 decided at their recent 41st reunion, to remember their class members who died in Vietnam and other wars. They presented a Memorial Plaque to the school listing the names of the eleven service men. Family members of the deceased, CHS students, and the community were all in attendance.

Before April 27th, 1969 all of us living in Sunset, Clinton, West Point, and Syracuse lived in the Pacific Time Zone.
Of course Clearfield High was in the Mountain Time Zone. I had no idea.
