Veterans Program

Veterans Recognition Program is a special veterans day celebration. We are proud to have had some of the earliest veterans of our United States posted at Fort Roberdeau  during the war.

 

The rangers posted at Fort Roberdeau were members of Clugage's Rangers and served a 9 month to 12 month term, many of whom served much longer upon reenlistment. They became eligible to become pensioned veterans after the war. Fort Roberdeau will honor all veterans with a recognition program.

 

This event was recognized with the Excellence in Programming Award by PA Rec.
