Disclaimer: The purpose of this page is to honor our Ruritan members that served in the military, and to thank them for their years of service to our country. This entire website is created and maintained by a volunteer who has no military background, and there are certain to be errors made. Please take that into consideration before criticizing the well-meaning efforts to honor the veterans of the Ruritan Clubs in the Rapidan District!  Efforts were made to have the military branch logos/seals close in size, as to not appear to “favor” one branch of the military more than another. Names will be added as they are received by the webmaster.

If you are a Ruritan member in the Rapidan District, and you served in the military, and your name is missing from this page, please notify the webmaster of your details so you can be included. The details requested are your name, branch of service, service start date, service end date (or list as still active) and which Ruritan Club you belong to.

We want to honor and thank our veterans with this public recognition.The structure of the page may be modified in the future. Modifications may include adding/deleting/revising text, and/or adding/deleting/revising graphics. This is a work in progress. If you notice any errors, we apologize for any duress that may cause you.

The use of graphics on this web page are meant to honor the veterans, and the branch of service. No disrespect is intended by the use of any graphic on this page. If a photograph of an individual is not available, a substitute graphic (generic in nature, reflecting the branch of service, not reflecting the actual rank of the individual) is being used simply as a formatting tool to make this web page have some uniformity in visual appeal. If you are uncomfortable with any graphic image being used in conjunction with YOUR own name, please contact the webmaster to make arrangements to replace the graphic. The intent of this website it to HONOR the veterans in every way possible. You can contact the webmaster using the form below:
