There are almost a half-million veterans in New Jersey, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. This Veterans Day, Monday, November 11, residents across the state will gather to support our vets, celebrate their accomplishments, and pay tribute to their dedication to our country.
Take the time to honor our vets and learn some history at the same time. The Battleship New Jersey, which launched December 7, 1942, was decommissioned in 1991, restored, and now established as a museum and memorial in Camden.
NJ.com will be honoring NJ vets by featuring their photos online. To share a photo, click here for details.
A variety of services and ceremonies are planned throughout the weekend, including parades, wreath laying tributes, guest speakers, and more. For a listing of local events, please visit:
