"Memorial High School is so named to honor the St. Marys area men and women who have served in America's Armed Forces, including those listed below who are among the many who gave their lives in our country's wars."


At the first home game of the 2019-2020 school year, the St. Marys All Brass Band presented a half-time show titled "Salute to America's Finest." It was a tribute to all current and former members of the United States Military. Members of the St. Marys VFW Post 9289 marched across the field carrying the flag of their respective branch as the band played the song for each military branch. The performance concluded with the band playing "God Bless America" as fireworks went off in the background.

The MHS chapter of the FFA conducts Operation Pail Mail each year. They seek local bucket sponsors to cover the cost of postage and supplies for the bucket. They send over 80 buckets annually. The buckets contain food and hygiene items as well as letters from elementary students. The unique thing about these care packages are the buckets- it gives soldiers a reusable container that they can utilize to protect their personal items while deployed. All of the buckets are sent to soldiers that currently serving overseas.
