Military Veterans

November 11, 2021


Ray Funeral & Cremation Service acknowledges the service of veterans who have served in the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy and Space Force. We honor veterans who have served in America's Wars: World War I (1917-1918), World War II (1941-1945), Korean War (1950-1953), Vietnam War (1964-1975), Desert Shield/Desert Storm (1990-1991). Although not officially declared a US war by the Department of Veterans Affairs, we honor veterans who served during the Afghanistan Conflict (2001-2021). 

To all veterans, living and deceased, we appreciate and "Thank You" for your courage and sacrifice which has enabled all Americans to enjoy Freedom.

Ray Funeral & Cremation Service recognizes the members of our staff who have served in the military: Benjamin Hall, Forrest Weaver, Craig Sloan and Walter Robertson (deceased, 04/25/2019).

On this Veterans Day, we must honor the most distinguished soldier of our time, General Colin L. Powell (04/05/1937-10/18/2021). He was an American politician, statesman, diplomat, and United States Army officer.  He served as the 65th United States Secretary of State from 2001 to 2005. General Powell served as the 16th United States National Security Advisor from 1987 to 1989 and as the 12th chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 1989 to 1993, the highest military position in the United States Department of Defense. General Powell, We Salute You!

And to the families of veterans, thank you for remembering your veteran and supporting all veterans.

You may light a candle for a veteran via the Tribute Wall.
