Veterans advocate Dick Tobiason found the plaque while walking around the former Bend High Schooll, which is now the Bend LaPine School District Administration Building.

 

"I found this plaque behind a door.  I wrote a letter to the superintendent of schools and principal and said let's get it to the new high school -- which admittedly is 55 years old.  Let's get it to where the studetns can see it and understand the Bend High students who lost their lives."

 

The school district approved the removal of the plaque and Tobiason is in the process of gathering the names of Bend High students who lost thier lives in other wars, such as the Korean and Vietnam Wars.  Their names will be added to the plaque.

 

They hope to gather all the names by the end of the year.  They must go through old yearbooks to collect them.
