Saratoga World War II Veterans

During World War II, 1941 to 1945, Saratoga was not an incorporated city. Saratoga area residents were called into service by Los Gatos Draft Board No. 113. This board served the West Valley and the County including residents of Gilroy, Morgan Hill, Saratoga, Campbell, Los Gatos and some parts of San Jose.

Saratoga's World War II Memorial Project

A community project initiated by the history students of Saratoga High School.

Project Committee Co-Chairmen: George Cooper, WWII veteran and Bill Cooper, (Cooper-Garrod Vineyards) Committee members include students from the Saratoga High School History Club.

Background: Saratoga's most significant local landmark is the Memorial Arch in Blaney Plaza, a monument to commemorate the Saratoga residents who gave their lives in World War I. Sadly, there is currently no public mention of the Saratoga residents who served and died in World War II. We would like to create a suitable tribute to their sacrifice.

Please make donation checks payable to Saratoga Historical Foundation and note that the money is to be directed to the World War II Memorial Fund. For further information contact the Saratoga Museum, 867-4311 or Bill Cooper 867-3616.
