Throughout the 20th century, millions of Americans answered the call to enlist during periods of war and risked their lives to defend their country.
This included numerous high schoolers who put on the uniforms and honorably served during conflicts but never received their diplomas.

As part of the Solano County Office of Education’s Operation Recognition event, the awards were presented to the service members, with the family members of four deceased recipients accepting on their behalf.
