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.
