WWII Central Casualties

WWII Plaque


Listed below are the students of the University of Central Oklahoma who lost their lives during World War II. In addition to the seven Vista editions dedicated to service members and the 1949 Bronze Book, there is an In Memoriam plaque located on the west side of the Y-Chapel memorializing these men. In an effort to honor their sacrifice, we have digitized their files from the Central Men & Women in Service Collection and made them accessible below.
