Vincent R. Kramer, RC '41 and a Loyal Son of Rutgers, served as a second lieutenant in the Marines during World War II. He was awarded the Navy Cross and eight stars of bravery for his service. Later, during the Korean War, he was sent on special operations behind enemy lines. After retiring from the military as a Colonel in 1964, Vince Kramer came back to the Banks and served the Rutgers Alumni Association as our Executive Secretary until 1987. Vince passed away in 2001.
the RAA created the Vincent R. Kramer scholarship. It is awarded to children and grandchildren of
Rutgers Alumni Association members who demonstrate outstanding academic
achievements as well as leadership qualities in the community. We
felt that we could do more to engage past and present Vincent R. Kramer
Scholarship recipients so that they can remain connected to the Rutgers alumni
community. The RAA is proud to announce the introduction of the
Vince Kramer Society, which is open to current and past Vincent R. Kramer
