Kansas City Kansas Community College - KCKCC Played Big Part In World War II Effort [cached]

Nearly 900 Kansas City Kansas Community College students and alumni were part of the "Greatest Generation" fighting in World War II as researched by Joe Grasela, KCKCC librarian shown with a WWII uniform and a poster of "Rosie the Riveter.

"KCKCC prepared young men for possible leadership roles when the U.S. was most challenged," said Joe Grasela, a KCKCC reference librarian who has researched the College's contributions to the World War II effort."On campus, there was a group called the Vendors of Victory who sold defense stamps to help in the war effort and others worked in plants involved with the war effort."
Grasela's research is especially timely in light of the start of the highly awaited and much acclaimed PBS documentaries entitled "The War" and produced by Ken Burns that begins on KCPT Sunday, Sept. 23, at 7 p.m.
Statistically, Grasela found 192 students and alumni were involved in the war in 1942, 575 in 1943, 850 in 1944 and a combined 886 at the war's end including 20 women, five male faculty members and one female.Of the 60 who perished, 24 were commissioned officers and 11 non-commissioned officers."A large number were commissioned because they had attended KCKCC and had some college education," said Grasela.
"It was always suppose to hang in a focal position in the college but when we moved to the new campus, it just vanished," said Grasela."One of our former employees remembers it but no one knows what happened to it."
A veteran of 20 years in the Army, Grasela comes from a military family.His father, Joe Sr., was in the Navy in World War II; an uncle John, fought in the Aleutian Islands; and another (Stanley) was in on the liberation of Dachau, the infamous German prison camp.Grasela's 20 years included 13 months in Korea and 7 ½ years in Germany.He was an instructor at the Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth before retiring.He and his wife Jennifer, have a son, Joe, a senior at Kansas State, and a daughter, Mary, a junior at Creighton.
Grasela couldn't agree more."The sacrifices that generation made on the war and home fronts was just incredible," he said.
