I would hope folks would have noticed this by now.


JHU has always put Gold Star flags on their nets for their players who died in wars. I believe there are 3 stars. We should definitely have one for Harry Gaver in addition to the award. If you visit Ford Island at Pearl Harbor, there is a memorial to the sailors and Marines who died aboard the USS Oklahoma. It's a series of white marble poles about 6' tall, one for each man with his name and rank on it. My son and I visited it, and I'm sure that I walked past the pole for Gaver and didn't realize there was one there for him.
