Special Centennial Supplement “Bronxville 1898-1998”

“They say ‘Our deaths are not ours they are yours;
they will mean what you make them.’”
from The Young Dead Soldiers
This website is intended to serve not only as a remembrance but also as a thank you to those who have and continue to serve our country. It is an educational forum for young and old alike and a chance for all to truly understand the contributions that the Bronxville community has made to our nation.
The BVM started as an annual exhibit, displayed over the years at the Bronxville Middle School and The Bronxville Women’s Club. The exhibit originally included reproductions of Village photos from the WWI and WWII periods, memorabilia donated by local residents and a collection of personal stories of those who have served and supported the armed services, both overseas and on the home front, over the last 100+ years. At the heart of the exhibit was the Honor Roll, a list of over 1,500 men and women from the Bronxville area who have served or are serving in the US Armed Forces today.
To the extent possible, this information has now been converted to this website and covers over 100 years of service by the men and women of Bronxville. All of the information contained herein on this site has been gathered on a best efforts basis and has either been contributed by individuals and family members or sourced from information available in the public domain. It continues to be a work in progress and we welcome all feedback and any additional information and material you would like to contribute.
