David Ritzschke- Remembered by Herman-Norcross High School

David Ritzschke graduated from Herman High School, in Herman, Minnesota in 1963. Currently there are two school pictures for him. One is his 1963 senior class picture. The other is his 1962 junior class group picture. You will find him by name in the first row. At the other end of that row, you will find Richard Apland, who would also graduate in 1963. Both Richard Apland and David Ritzschke would die in Vietnam. Together, they are the two soldiers of Herman to die in Vietnam.
The pictures came from the help of 1961 graduate Dave Haupert, the students and staff of Herman-Norcross High School and especially school staffer Jill Tolifson, who tracked down and submitted the graduation pictures.
