Armed Forces Memorial

In 2010, the William Floyd School District, in conjunction with the William Floyd Alumni Association, has constructed and dedicated an Armed Forces Memorial to honor former William Floyd High School students who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country. Former William Floyd High School students who made the ultimate sacrifice are: Specialist Leslie Paul Bernstein, Specialist Thomas J. Wilwerth and Corporal Paulo Marko Pacificador.

Additionally, if you know of any former William Floyd High School students who gave their lives in battle, please submit the name of the individual and approximate year of attendance or graduation. We would like to honor all former William Floyd High School students who have given their lives in service to our nation. We hope that this memorial becomes a focal point in our community where current and future generations can visit and reflect upon the sacrifices made by these brave individuals and honor all who have served or are currently serving.

The memorial is located on the front lawn outside the north entrance of William Floyd High School surrounded by a brick “Path of Honor” and a “Garden of Hope.”Currently, there are nearly 600 bricks engraved with special messages of gratitude or the name of a special person, family or business.  Thank you for your ongoing support of our students, our schools and our community.
