I have heard that there were more Philadelphia, Pennsylvania high
school graduates killed in Vietnam than any other high schools in
the United States. I understand there is even a monument for them
at Philadelphia. Is this correct ?

Philadelphia was the fourth-largest city at the time of the War,
so it is possible. However, I don't know of any monument specific
to Vietnam in Philly.
Someone could count the number of names on the Memorial (or the
web page) with Philadelphia as a home to come up with a number.
