On Sunday, November 11, 2018 Bob Smyth and Bill Brown officiated over a short ceremony which renewed our gratitude to all veterans for their service to our community.
In observance of the Centennial Commemoration of World War I, Riverton’s Veterans Affairs Committee installed two plaques bearing six names of Riverton’s Gold Star Boys and four names of nurses who served during the Great War.
Riverton supports its many resident service members and veterans and is grateful for their sacrifices, especially for the sacrifice of those who paid the ultimate price with their lives.
By displaying the official State Killed in Action (K.I.A.) flag we recognize all members of the Armed Forces who were killed in action, or died of wounds resulting from injuries received in action, in any conflict in which the United States has been involved.
Thank you to Veterans and Auxiliary Supporters from VFW Post 3020 for serving as Honor Guard.

We always welcome another photographer’s perspective on Riverton’s Veterans Day ceremony and extend sincere thanks to Councilman Jim Quinn for allowing us to display his photographs.
