Lee Caldwell Ragsdale

1921-1943

Lee graduated from Kirkland High School in 1941. It had always been reported that Lee died fighting Guerrillas in the Philippines. Earlier this year we learned that Lee had been taken prisoner in 1942, survived the Bataan Death March and died while a P.O.W. in 1943. Lee’s body was recovered in 1949 and returned home. Lee is buried in the Kirkland Cemetery. We owe thanks to Lee Ragsdale Bates and Stacey Ragsdale for providing a photo of Lee.
