    Remembering Donald D. Mayhew

    Jul 2, 2015

    At the Ohio State University, students make sacrifices every day to succeed in the classroom and beyond. However, it is important to remember those students who have made the enormous sacrifice of putting their academic career on hold to serve in the United States military.

    One of those students, Donald D. Mayhew, made the ultimate sacrifice 70 years ago after he left college to serve in the U.S. Army during World War II. Mayhew, who had a strong passion for trees and a dream of graduating from Ohio State, was killed in action on June 13, 1945, in the Battle of Okinawa.
