TULSA, Okla. (AP) — At least 28 Central High School alumni who died in the Vietnam War will be formally honored on Veterans Day

A ceremony is planned Monday at the Tulsa school.

The ceremony was planned after brass plates with the names of school alumni who died in the war were discovered in a storage closet.

David Rule, a Tulsa veteran who served in Vietnam, has affixed the plates on a granite slab that will be presented during Monday's ceremony at the school. Rule has spent the past decade memorializing the names of about 150 area veterans on smaller plaques he presents to their families.

The school is still searching for more alumni who may have died in the war.
