"Students come to Lincoln High and leave Lincoln High, some with fanfare and some quietly. Garrison was one who came and left quietly. He was a student, though, who made an impression on those who knew him."

Lincoln High Educator-Susan Avery-Mother of Garrison Avery

Soldier Stories

Welcome to the Soldier Story page. It is on this page that you can read first hand accounts and reports on those Boys and Girls that served our country. Several of the stories are very timely and fresh in peoples minds. Other stories are those of soldiers that attended Lincoln High in the early twentieth century and are being read for the first time in over 90 years. To read a story just click on the names in the table below.

I am aware that for each person there is a story about war and loss. The purpose of this site is to get your memories of an individual who served with United States or it's Allies. Maybe you lived through war and wish to share a different perspective. That is what the intent of this page is, for the Lincoln High Community to remember so that we may never forget.

I ask each of you to think back and remember, remember your feelings about war and loss, and share your stories with us. Just click on this "Stories" link and share your story with the world.
