As I crisscross the District, one of my keener pleasures is discovering the rich history within our schools.  Among the many historical treasures, perhaps the most powerful are the plaques and memorials honoring RCSD students and graduates who gave their lives in four American wars:  World War One, World War Two, Korea and Vietnam.

The WWI plaque from East is particularly poignant as it includes David Hochstein, the violin virtuoso who was killed in the Argonne in October 1918 and for whom the Hochstein School of Music is named. democratandchronicle.com/story/history/2014/02/16/feb-16-david-hochstein-violin-virtuoso-is-born/5527531/

I was surprised that several of the older schools do not display plaques:  Charlotte, Jefferson and Monroe.  If you know of any more plaques please let me know.
