Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

When World War II broke out, hundreds of FJC students were drafted or enlisted in various defense units. The campus kept an honorary display commemorating men killed or missing in action. Of the 56 Fullerton residents killed during the war, 39 had attended the high school or college. Students who entered the military while enrolled at the college were included in the yearbooks with “Military Withdrawal” or “Merchant Marine” next to their photographs and were immediately reinstated upon their return.
