Seniors in Service - 1946

The class of '46 proudly present their senior classmates, who are serving in the Armed Forces. Leaving their studies and many friends behind, these boys enlisted in their junior year.

The Army is well represented by John O'Keefe and Franke O'Brien. John left New York City for overseas duty in November, 1945, and is now stationed in Bari, Italy. Frank is also doing his share of overseas duty, stationed in Frankfurt, Germany, for the past year.

Wearing the sailor "blues" are Tony Deisler and Kenneth Bloomer, who left in his sophomore year. Tony recently paid a visit to the school making it seem like old times again. At present Tony is stationed at the separation center in San Diego, California.

We pay special tribute to James Gavit, our only classmate preparing for the priesthood. At present Jim is attending Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit and expects to spend four more years there.

To James and to all the seniors in service, who will be far away on Commencement day, we send an expression of our deepest loyalty and friendship, and say, "We'll be missin' you."
