Yuma Sheriff’s Posse Member Honored For Service In WWII

Yuma-county-sheriffs-posseLifetime Sheriff’s Posse Member Raymond Evans was recently honored in Washington, D.C. for his service during World War Two.  Evans served in the Navy from 1944 until 1946 as a Fireman First Fleet Tug Sailor.  He was in the South Pacific and was deployed to Pearl Harbor when it came under attack. 

Evans and his brother Dick Evans, who also served during World War Two, were flown to Washington, D.C. by the Honor Flight Network – a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for their sacrifices. 

Raymond Evans joined the Sheriff’s Posse in 1972 and served as the Posse Captain from 1987-to-1988.  He was awarded the lifetime member award and designation in 1987 and continues to be a strong asset to the Yuma County Sheriff’s Office Posse.
