Port Royal has a tradition of honoring with pride veterans who have served in the military services.

During World War II there was an Honor Roll in the center of the town that displayed the names of towns people actively serving in one of the branches of the military during the War. (See photo)

Each year the Old and New Church Hill Cemetery Associations place small United States Flags on the graves of all veterans buried in either of the cemeteries.

The Juniata County Fair has a special program each year honoring Veterans.

In 2019, banners were attached to light poles honoring some who served. (See photo)
