East Lyme High School honors those who served with Field of Honor
East Lyme ― Tuesday evening marked the unveiling of the high school’s Field of Honor display – including a mural and the names of high school alumni who have served in the U.S. military – built around a plaque dedicated to the late US Army Capt. Jason Hamill.
Three shadow boxes containing the names of numerous alumni who served are affixed to a mural painted by students of art teacher Rachel Michaud.
The display is an extension of efforts by the school’s Vikes for Vets Committee, which in 2021 dedicated a memorial plaque in honor of Hamill, a member of class of 1993, in the front foyer.
Hamill was 31 when he was killed by a roadside bomb in Baghdad, Iraq, in 2006. He grew up in Salem.
The committee is seeking the names of all alumni who have served in the armed forces. Those with information about those who have served should contact Matt LaConti at email@example.com or (860) 739-6946 ext. 5530.
