Ewing Township Honor Roll

The citizens of the Township of Ewing gratefully acknowledge those from Ewing  who served.  
Lest we forget.

This Ewing Township Honor Roll honors Township residents who have served in our country's wars.  The small photo on the right is from the dedication of a WWII Honor Roll of residents from the Ewingville area in town that was originally on the corner of Ewingville Road & Rte. 31, next to the what is currently a Citgo station.  The dedication was held on November 21, 1943 with many dignitaries and civic leaders paying tribute to those who were serving our country.  

The Honor Roll stood as a reminder of our WWII heroes until the mid-50s when it was taken down.  John Vernam salvaged it, storing it for nearly 50 years in his barn, until it was donated to Ewing Township.  The Township hoped to restore it, but it was beyond repair.  In about 2000, Harry Masterson worked to have a replica made and installed behind the municipal building.  It was damaged beyond repair in a recent storm and is no longer standing.  

The Township also established plaques representing various periods of service listing Ewing servicemen and women.  These are now located at the Ewing Senior and Community Center (ESCC) on Lower Ferry Road and can be viewed on the wall outside of the Ewing Patriotic Committee office. 


A Purple Heart Walk recognizing Township members of the Armed Forces who earned the Purple Heart for having been wounded, killed, or who died of injuries sustained during service, was established at the Major General George J. Betor Veterans Memorial Park in 1994.  For more information about this memorial go to our Purple Heart Walk page.

The list of our Hometown Heroes below include names of Ewing residents who served in our nation's wars.  It is a work in progress compiled by the Ewing Township Historic Preservation Society.   A new initiative is being established to record veterans and the period in which they served that will be posted to this website.  The project will be monitored by the IT staff and the Patriotic Committee members.  Veterans who have served on active duty during the Cold War Era, Gulf War I, the Iraq War, and in Afghanistan can be included  by submitting their information to the Technology Office at 2 Jake Garzio Drive.  Look for more information coming shortly.

The asterisk (*) following a name indicates that the serviceman/woman died in wartime.
