ATTENTION: We need your help in identifying over 2100 Oneonta community members veterans who served in WWII and we believe were also OHS alumni. We would like to know what year they graduated and or branch of their service and rank. They may be a relative, a past neighbor or someone your family remembers – just send us an email. (Please go to our OHS veterans by class year page and do a name or a WWII search)

Duty & Sacrifice
In honor of all Oneonta High School Alumni Military Veterans, all gave some, some gave all,
in the service of the United States of America.
In 2014, a project was undertaken by a few Oneonta High School (OHS) alumni, both veteran and non-veteran. The purpose of their project has been to honor and remember all OHS alumni whom have served in United States Armed Forces during times of regional conflicts, peace and war.
The project was first started with the support of OHS Alumni, OHS faculty and community members. Together they initially collaborated in the initial research to build the web site to honor Oneonta High School Alumni Veterans.
The project continues and we need your help in identifying veterans who wish to be listed on the site. Anyone with such information may contact us via email or the Oneonta High Alumni Association contact page to initiate the process of including the veteran on this site.
