Honor Wall Information
The Oshkosh High/West Alumni Veterans Honor Wall is a located between the two cafeterias at Oshkosh West High School. The Honor Wall pays tribute to those who sacrificed their time and life to protect the freedoms we have here in Oshkosh, WI as well as the United States of America. Each veterans name is engraved on a plate and attached to the wall that memorializes their service. Many of these veterans were never welcomed home in an appropriate manner and thanked for what they gave up. That is why, today, we welcome all our veterans home and thank them for their service to our country and Oshkosh, WI. Oshkosh High and Oshkosh West are proud of you and how you represented our school and community.

A website has been created as a digital memorial for the world to see. All the names that are engraved on the Veterans Honor Wall at Oshkosh West High School can be found on the digital Veterans Honor Wall. 

Help Nominate a Veteran

We Need Your Help! Oshkosh High/West does not have many records that show who served our country. The veterans who are currently on the Veterans Honor Wall have been nominated by their family and friends. If you know anyone who graduated from Oshkosh High School or Oshkosh West High School who served our country in one of the branches of the armed services please fill out the nomination form so proper tribute can be made.

Please contact Social Studies teacher Mr. Andrew Schaller if you have any questions, know of anyone who would be willing to help or provide a tax deductible donation to the project at or (920) 424-4090 ext. 3279.  Thank you!
