On June 4, 1945, shortly after V-E Day, The Gilman News published this list remembering the 36 Gilman alumni who died during World War II. By the time hostilities with Japan ended two months later, the list of the dead had grown to 40.
We honor all members of the Gilman family who have fought and died for their country from World War I until today. We will never forget your sacrifice.
