John William Frazier, Starr student from June 22, 1927 until August 30, 1929, gave his life in service to our country at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. On the 75th anniversary of that fateful day, we remember him.
Mr. Frazier was a Coxswain aboard the USS Curtiss, a Navy Seaplane Tender, that had been dispatched from Norfolk in May of that year to support the Pacific arena.
