Clermont Northeastern honors military graduates

By Martha Jacob – News Democrat

Clermont Northeastern High School is creating a “Wall of Military Distinction” to honor the service and sacrifices of any former student who has served or is serving in the armed forces.
“This project came about after our school’s Veterans Day ceremony,” said TJ Glassmeyer, principal at Clermont Northeastern High School.
“During that Veterans Day event we met and talked extensively with veteran Cliff Riley, a Northeastern graduate in 1966. He told us story after story of all the veterans in the area who were graduates from our school, and we wanted to do something to honor them.”
Glassmeyer said that the school’s athletic director Mike Kirk saw a tribute wall at Anderson High School and was inspired to create CNE’s own veterans’ memorial wall.
“We’ve done some research and it looks like we may have between 400 to 500 applicants that will be named on our Wall of Military Distinction, all of whom attended Clermont Northeastern High School, whether they graduated or not,” Glassmeyer said.
“If they served our country in the past or are currently serving, then their name, branch of service, years of service and service ribbons will be added to the wall. We are also leaving room for future veteran’s names to be added.”
Glassmeyer said he and his staff will be reaching out to as many people as possible to obtain names of veterans.
Anyone who attended Clermont Northeastern High School and served or is serving in a branch of the armed forces is asked to contact the school so that they could be added to the wall
“We hope that the Wall of Military Distinction will be source of pride and inspiration for the community and in a small way honor the service and sacrifices of those who served,” Glassmeyer said.
Any former service member who wishes to be included needs to submit a copy of their DD214 Form. Copies can be obtained by contacting the Clermont County Veterans Service Commission at 513-732-7363.  Glassmeyer can be reached at (513) 625-1211, ext. 112 and Kirk can be reached at (513) 625-1211, ext. 115.
