Editor’s Note: From the very first graduating class of Round Rock High School, to the present day war in Iraq and Afghanistan, thousands of former Round Rock ISD students have headed the call of duty to serve our country during times of peace and at times of war. Not all returned home.

We remember their sacrifice.
