The Fauquier Heritage and Preservation Foundation Salutes our Fauquier County Veterans

Veterans Day 

Veterans Day began as a recognition of those who died in World War I.  The cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I was signed on the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918.  To honor our veterans of that war, on May 13, 1938, Congress made the 11th of November in each year a legal holiday – a day to be dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as “Armistice Day.”   In 1954, after World War II had required the greatest mobilization of soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen in the nation’s history; and after Korea War, Congress amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word “Armistice” and inserting in its place the word “Veterans.”  Thus, today, Veterans Day honors American veterans of all wars (Memorial Day salutes those who died in combat).  Below is a list of WWII veterans who lived in northern Fauquier County.

Those killed in action are listed in bold.  We welcome photographs of these veterans, and any additions or corrections to our list.  We salute all Fauquier residents who served in wartime throughout America’s history and hope to compile lists of those veterans.
