WWFS Board Member Ronnie Rains Presented with Order of St George Gold Medallion

March 9, 2023

Lt. Gen. John B Sylvester, Chairman of WWFS Board of Directors, presented the Gold Medallion, Order of St George to Ronnie Rains for supporting many veteran charities nationwide.

The Order of Saint George is the patron Saint of Armor and Cavalry and the highest award that we give in the association, of the U.S. Cavalry and Armor Association. It is the equivalency of the Doughboy Award.

In 1986, the U.S. Armor Association initiated the Order of Saint George awards program to honor the best Armor and Cavalry leaders and established the gold medallion to honor lifetime achievements in promoting mounted warfare. There have been 66 members elected since 1986 who committed to serve the Armor and Cavalry, during and after their careers.

WWFS is honored to have both these outstanding men serving on our Board of Directors
