WNHS Class of 2003 graduate, Jake Spann, died in 2006 during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Spann, a Humvee machine-gunner, was helping in a transport mission in the Iraqi city of Hit when an IED detonated under his vehicle. His service - and ultimately his passing - is the reason why we can enjoy the freedoms and our daily rituals at North. [Click picture for a larger version.]
