There were two scholarships awarded for the 2nd Annual BVA Scholarship in 2021. Both scholarships were named in honor of Beirut Veterans. One was 1st Lt. John Boyett who was killed in the Beirut Bombing, and the other was long term BVA Board Member Bill Yontz. Both recipients had connections to the BVA and each of the their stories highlight the importance of the BVA Scholarship.
