The Board of Directors of the Ewing Family Association (EFA) has approved the creation and development of an honorary veterans' group. The EFA hereby recognizes and salutes those EFA members and immediate family members who have faithfully served as veterans of the Armed Forces of the USA.
The veterans’ group will exist as an honorary roster of veterans. However, there may be times at Scottish Heritage or EFA events whereby group members could ‘muster up’ and experience the esprit de corps that comes from not only being veterans but being of Ewing Scottish descent. The Clan Ewing Commander, Thor Ewing, has also given EFA approval for establishing the Warrior Regiment.
Our EFA veterans group will surely promote a sense of pride and energize the EFA membership. Let us hope our younger generations of Ewings appreciate this and other special groups within the EFA.
Membership in the Ewing Family Association is open to all persons with the Ewing (or similar) surname, to Ewing spouses, to anyone descended from a Ewing, or to anyone who supports the Association's purposes.
