"Elmer J Warner (center section of memorial) served in the Navy and graduated from Haslett High School I believe in 1932. He was a 13 letterman in High School and quite the baseball star.
While in the Navy, they grabbed him to play on the Navy baseball team as a pitcher. He also had played in the minor leagues for Pittsburg and Philly.
I was once told that he held the record at Haslett High School for a long, long time for no-hitters. I'm not sure if he still holds it or not. He passed away in 1999 and is buried in Laingsburg, [Shiawassee Co., Michigan]. It would be nice if you could include his photo on your website. Unfortunately, anyone who knew him has probably passed away.

NATIONAL WWII MEMORIAL
A National WWII Memorial was finally built in Washington D.C. This is the first WW II memorial dedicated to all who served during World War II. It honors all military veterans of the war, the citizens on the home front and the nation at large.
It is located on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. at the Rainbow Pool site at the east end of the Reflecting Pool between the Lincoln Memorial and the Washington Monument.
The memorial was dedicated on Veterans Day, November 11, 1995, and accepted by President George W. Bush, at a formal ceremony, during a four day celebration. Groundbreaking was held on Veterans Day 2000. The memorial was funded almost entirely by private contributions.
