Several Christchurch alumni worked through the summer of 2009 to collect the names of Christchurch School Military Veterans. The volunteers understand that they have not found all of the names of alumni who have served our country and ask your help to identify others you may know.  Click the link below to view the list of over 325 accumulated names. The list includes retired and active service men and women who attended Christchurch School.
Please direct your comments, additions or corrections to Huntley Galleher, Director of Alumni Relations.
