George Toriello sent me this material December 9, 2017 on John Martin Boswald. His name appears on the Wall Unit as "Martin Boswald", His name appears on the 1946 Dedication page in the yearbook as "Martin Boswold" which is a mistaken spelling of last name. Finally, his name appears as shown by this research on the World War II Plaque at City Hall as:
"John Martin Boswald". 
 
John Martin Boswald was born in 1919 and died in France on November 19, 1944 and is buried at
Epinal American Cemetery Dinoze France Plot B, Row 7, Grave 51. John Martin Boswald served in the United States Army 314th Infantry Regiment, 79th Division. John Martin Boswald posthumously received the Purple Heart for his sacrifice. The 1940 Federal Census shows John Martin Boswald living at 140 Spring Valley Road in Hackensack New Jersey.

Please take note, all spellings/census/military histories confirmed by Trish E., who has a family tree on Ancestry, which includes the Boswald family.  All of this information was researched by
George Toriello.
