NORTHRIDGE ALUMNI VETERANS MEMORIAL

A Northridge alumni is anyone who ever attended a Northridge school, even if for one year.

A Northridge alumnus proposed a NHS Alumni Veterans Memorial, to be erected on the grounds of the Northridge Stadium, to the Board of Education on July 09, 2012. The Board of Education approved the proposal on August 13, 2012. The first phase construction started on May 30, 2013 and finished on September 19, 2013. The second phase was completed on July 03, 2014, Adding two granite uprights. A black granite lighted memorial with matching benches and flag pole, was erected. The names of deceased NHS alumni veterans are  etched onto the monument. New names will be added in groups. Information is needed about NHS veterans. The memorial is financed only by donations.

As of June 02, 2021, eight groups of deceased veteran names have been added to the memorial. The next group will be added when there are enough names to make it cost effective.
The cost to add a name to the monument is approximately $25 to $30 each and is done through donations. Please consider a donation so the next list of names will be added without a delay for lack of funds. Donation information is listed above.

Former POW, 91, Finally Receives Medals Earned In WWII

Tampa Bay Times, 2017

Sixty-seven years after U.S. Navy Petty Officer McPherson "Mac" Plecker nearly starved to death as a  Japanese prisoner of war, he finally got the recognition and medals he earned. "I knew I was due some medals, but I really never paid too much attention to it," said Plecker, 91. "I really didn't  think after all this time I was going to get them." But on Saturday morning, the World War II veteran was driven by stretch limousine to the Palms of Largo retirement community for a stirring medal award ceremony in front of about 150 guests, mostly veterans.

Nine medals were pinned to Plecker's black jacket, including the American Defense Service Medal, a Purple Heart and a Prisoner of War Medal for imprisonment between 1941 and 1945. During those years, Plecker suffered beatings and torture. He survived by eating rats, boiled weeds, raw fish heads — even a can of shoe polish.

Now he has lung cancer, and it was his Suncoast Hospice team, with assistance from former U.S. Rep. Mike Bilirakis' office, that  pushed to get the medals he deserved. Daphni Austin, veterans relations liaison for Suncoast Hospice and director of Honor Flight of West Central Florida, told the crowd Saturday that she was struck by the first thing Plecker did when he returned home to the United States. "He went and bought a Navy dress uniform. . . . To me this was a true statement of this man's loyalty and pride as a member of the U.S. Navy. After everything, what was important to him was to get back into uniform," she said. That uniform had to be tailored — he weighed just over 80 pounds when he was released from prison camp.

Plecker joined the Navy in 1940 and achieved the rank of machinist mate third class. He was stationed at Wake Island in the Pacific when the Japanese launched an air attack shortly after bombing Pearl Harbor. Shrapnel from bombs tore into Plecker's chest and left arm. He still carries scars. On Dec. 23, 1941, two weeks after the initial attack, the Americans were forced to surrender. Plecker's personnel and medical records were lost during the invasion. Plecker would serve the balance of World War II in prison camps in China and Japan. After he was discharged, he went on with his life, owning a car lot for three decades and then a drive-through beverage store. He never pursued the decorations to which he was entitled. "It was just something he didn't really ever talk about," said his daughter Mary Gerrity, 48, of Tarpon Springs. "He's a very humble man." Even today, the memories of his years as a POW still cause him pain. "It's something I'd just as soon forget," he said. But his recollections will live forever. In 2002, Plecker gave a recorded audio account of his military history to his friend, Clearwater attorney Carleton "Woody" Weidemeyer. It is now archived at the Library of Congress as part of the Veterans History Project.

In telling his story, Plecker recalled the first wave of bombers to fly over Wake Island. "They were not much more than 100 feet off the ground," he said. "There wasn't much to do except run." After the Americans surrendered, he was taken to an airfield, where his hands and neck were bound by wire to those of other prisoners in a daisy chain formation. He recalls being kept on the airfield for three days with no food and only "gasoline water" to drink. (The prisoners were given water from five-gallon gas cans that had not been rinsed out.) Food rations over the next four years consisted of fist-size balls of rice and "soup" — hot water with a bit of vegetable juice in it. The POWs were beaten for no reason, he said. Sometimes they were used by the Japanese for martial arts practice. Many died from exposure, malnutrition, diarrhea and pneumonia.

By Sunday, the precious medals Plecker had received the day before, along with an American flag flown over the U.S. Capitol, were under glass, "where my dad can look at them every day," said Gerrity. She said her father was tired out after all the pomp, but "still spunky." The nonagenarian lives independently in his own home in North Pinellas and drives a brand new red Chevy Camaro. Still, he remains humble. "It's nice to know people haven't forgotten us," Plecker said.

U.S. Navy Petty Officer McPherson "Mac" Plecker passed away on the tenth day of July, 2014.

              We Are Veterans.

We left home as teenagers for an unknown adventure.
We loved our country enough to defend it and protect it with our own lives.
We said goodbye to friends and family and everything we knew.
We learned the basics and then we scattered in the wind to the far corners of the Earth.
We found new friends and new family.
We became brothers and sisters regardless of color, race or creed.
We had plenty of good times, and plenty of bad times.
We didn’t get enough sleep.
We smoked and drank too much.
We picked up both good and bad habits.
We worked hard and played harder.
We didn’t earn a great wage.
We experienced the happiness of mail call and the sadness of missing important events.
We didn’t know when, or even if, we were ever going to see home again.
We grew up fast, and yet somehow, we never grew up at all.
We fought for our freedom, as well as the freedom of others.
Some of us saw actual combat, and some of us didn’t.
Some of us saw the world, and some of us didn’t.
Some of us dealt with physical warfare, most of us dealt with psychological warfare.
We have seen and experienced and dealt with things that we can’t fully describe or explain, as not all of our sacrifices were physical.
We participated in time honored ceremonies and rituals with each other, strengthening our bonds and camaraderie.
We counted on each other to get our job done and sometimes to survive it at all.
We have dealt with victory and tragedy.
We have celebrated and mourned.
We lost a few along the way.
When our adventure was over, some of us went back home, some of us started somewhere new and some of us never came home at all.
We have told amazing and hilarious stories of our exploits and adventures.
We share an unspoken bond with each other, that most people don’t experience, and few will understand.
We speak highly of our own branch of service, and poke fun at the other branches.
We know however, that, if needed, we will be there for our brothers and sisters and stand together as one, in a heartbeat.
Being a veteran is something that had to be earned, and it can never be taken away.
It has no monetary value, but at the same time it is a priceless gift.
People see a veteran and they thank them for their service.
When we see each other, we give that little upwards head nod, or a slight smile, knowing that we have shared and experienced things that most people have not.
So, from myself to the rest of the veterans out there, I commend and thank you for all that you have done and sacrificed for your country.
Try to remember the good times and forget the bad times.
Share your stories.
But most importantly, stand tall and proud, for you have earned the right to be called a Veteran.

COINS LEFT ON TOMBSTONES

While visiting some cemeteries you may notice that headstones marking certain graves have coins on them, left by previous visitors to the grave.

These coins have distinct meanings when left on the headstones of those who gave their life while serving in America's military, and these meanings vary depending on the denomination of coin.

A coin left on a headstone or at the grave site is meant as a message to the deceased soldier's family that someone else has visited the grave to pay respect. Leaving a penny at the grave means simply that you visited.

A nickel indicates that you and the deceased trained at boot camp together, while a dime means you served with him in some capacity. By leaving a quarter at the grave, you are telling the family that you were with the solider when he was killed.

According to tradition, the money left at graves in national cemeteries and state veterans cemeteries is eventually collected, and the funds are put toward maintaining the cemetery or paying burial costs for indigent veterans.

In the US, this practice became common during the Vietnam war, due to the political divide in the country over the war; leaving a coin was seen as a more practical way to communicate that you had visited the grave than contacting the soldier's family, which could devolve into an uncomfortable argument over politics relating to the war.

Some Vietnam veterans would leave coins as a "down payment" to buy their fallen comrades a beer or play a hand of cards when they would finally be reunited.

The tradition of leaving coins on the headstones of military men and women can be traced to as far back as the Roman Empire.
