Honor Roll Update - Attention Veterans
A committee has been established by the Selectmen for the purpose of updating our military Honor Roll. Those serving on the committee are Mike Yeager, Jonathan Taylor, Roger Merriman, Peter Pohl and Jennifer Wright.
Since the last update to the Honor Roll, the United States has been involved in one (1) war and six (6) conflicts: Persian Gulf War, Panama (1989-1990), Afghanistan - Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), Afghanistan – Operation Freedom’s Sentinel (OFS), Iraq - Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF), Iraq – Operation New Dawn (OND) and Islamic State – Operation Inherent Resolve (OIR).
Individuals from Sandwich who served in the United States military during the periods of war and conflict provided above are eligible to be listed on the Honor Roll. At the time of enlistment, appointment or induction into the Military Services, the service member must have declared Sandwich as their “Home of Record”.
In order for the committee to develop a comprehensive list of all eligible service members, we need assistance from town residents. Please contact the Selectmen’s Office with the following information: service member’s name, branch of military service, rank, and years of service. Please include the service member’s contact information or a point of contact for the service member in the event the committee needs additional information. The committee appreciates any information provided.
