Karl Schwartz graduated from Medfield High School in 1983 and headed directly into West Point. After graduation from West Point, Schwartz took part in the first Iraq War. He has since gone on to become a career officer and has served as a company commander and a tank commander.
Schwartz is currently back in Iraq, stationed in Baghdad with a job covering systems analysis. He is also close to earning his doctorate in education. Married and the father of seven children, Schwartz’s oldest is himself headed to West Point.
This past Christmas, political science and AP US History students at Medfield High School sent Schwartz “Medfield Care Packages” to let him know that he and the other soldiers in Iraq are appreciated and not forgotten. In appreciation, Schwartz sent to his high school alma mater an American flag that had flown over command headquarters in Baghdad.
Schwartz’s father, Karl, Sr., recently presented the flag to high school principal Judy Noble (pictured). The flag and an accompanying plaque will be located in the school’s cafeteria.
