Life, Liberty and ~~~~

These are the things that must be protected--our life and liberty, and to
protect  them our youth  must be prepared to  fight on  the front lines, to
fight  on  the home  lines.  At  Central the boys who  will soon enter  the
armed forces, the girls who will take over at home are being trained for
this duty.

World War II  was raging and every boy in  the Class of 1943 new that
he  would soon be  in the Army, Navy,  Army Air Corp, Marines, Coast
Guard, or the Merchant Marine.

This Web Page is dedicated to all the men and women in the Class of
1943 who served their country in whatever endeavor and especially to
those who lost their lives in the service of their country.


A special thanks to Riley Foyil & Joe Ashlock for this
Central Class of 1943 website.
