Pine Valley Veterans of Foreign Wars (1950 – Present)

PVCS Veterans Plaque
Pictured: Dale Snyder with grandchildren Kayce & Kilian Abers
and High School Principal Paul Mihalko 
On November 8, 2013, in observance of Veterans’ Day, a plaque with the heading “Pine Valley Central School Veterans of Foreign Wars (1950 – Present)” was donated to the Pine Valley Central High School to honor Pine Valley High School students who served their country during times of war.  The donor, Dale Snyder (Class of 1965-66), chose to show his respect and appreciation to fellow veterans by recognizing them in this manner.  The plaque is prominently displayed in the hallway opposite the high school office.
Mr. Snyder has a long history with Pine Valley.  His siblings, children and two of his three grandchildren are, or will be, Pine Valley graduates. He was a former Pine Valley bus driver, his wife worked for the school for 35 years and his daughter is a PV elementary education teacher.  A veteran of the Vietnam War, he is a life member of the Cherry Creek VFW Post 2522, the Vietnam Veterans of America Post 865, the Disabled American Veterans Post 47 and the South Dayton American Legion Post 1593.
A big thank you is extended to Frank Giles, Pat Bromley and Stacy Chase for their efforts in helping to procure and verify names.  Although there are a number of names already on the plaque, it is an ongoing project.  Additional names will be placed on the plaque as they are received and verified.  If you attended Pine Valley High School and are a veteran of a foreign war (from 1950 to present) and your name does not appear, please contact the District Superintendent (988-3293 ext. 3399) or Dale Snyder (296-5364).
