The Riverton War Memorial building, located at 601 Main Street, was erected in 1945/6 for the purpose of recording the names of those from Riverton who had served in America’s Armed Forces in time of war.
The Historical Society of Riverton does not decide eligibility; the Riverton Military & Veterans Affairs Committee does that.
The Committee seeks to add names of eligible veterans to the memorial. Any present or former resident of the Borough of Riverton, New Jersey, who served on active duty in the Armed Forces of the United States of America during a time of war, is eligible to have their name placed on the memorial.
To verify eligibility, you must present a copy of your DD-214 (discharge papers) or a copy of your military orders.
The Committee also wishes to obtain old military uniforms, medals, military equipment, and scans of service photos for any members of the armed services listed on the Honor Roll.
Find more here about the history of the Memorial and the decision in 2012 by the Military and Veterans Affairs Committee to change the eligibility requirement that resulted in additional veterans’ names from post-WWII conflicts being added to the Honor Roll.
