Sheriff’s Office To Begin Funeral Escorts For Military Veterans

NEWS RELEASE

January 24, 2022




Scioto County Sheriff David Thoroughman announced that his Office will begin providing

funeral escorts for U.S. military veterans free of charge to the family.


I believe that providing this service for those who have sacrificed and served this great nation is

a tribute that needs to be provided. We need to honor the men and women who have given of

themselves to ensure that we have our freedoms.


I would like to thank Special Deputy Greg Rucker, a brother U.S. Air Force Veteran, for offering

to provide this tribute to our veterans. Special Deputy Rucker is a valuable asset to this office,

always offering his service to better our community. He has made arrangements with the area

funeral homes on how to request this service.
