Memorial Day Message

Flag in Veterans Cemeteryy“The veterans of our military services have put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms that we enjoy.  They have dedicated their lives to their country and deserve to be recognized for their commitment.”      – Judd Gregg

As the son of a Tin Can Sailor, Duty, Honor, Country and Family have been engrained in me.  Last night I drove by the Salem County War Veterans Memorial Park and Cemetery on Rt. 45, Pilesgrove.  The beauty of the flags waving over each of our remembered heroes and loved ones left me awestruck.  I pulled over just to absorb the magnitude of sacrifice.

Please take time this Memorial Day weekend to honor and admire the Salem County War Veterans Memorial Park and Cemetery, it is a must see.

Thank you to Joe Hannagan and all the men and women who worked tirelessly to prepare the Cemetery for Memorial Day, 2021.
