WWII Memorial Dedication Invitation
On Veterans Day, Tuesday, November 11, 2008, Governor Jon S Corzine and Major General Glenn K. Rieth will be dedicating the New Jersey World War II Memorial. Veterans Day is a fitting occasion to honor the men and women of the Greatest Generation for the sacrifices they made on behalf of our country more than 60 years ago. The ceremony will take place at 2:30pm at the Statehouse Plaza across from the Memorial.
Please save this date on your calendar and pass the information onto everyone who would like to join us for this momentous event. The tribute promises to be an occasion that will make every Veteran and all New Jerseyans proud.
Mindful that a great many of you are having your own parades and ceremonies to honor local veterans on November 11th, we have planned our ceremony for later in the day. We hope that this will allow everyone to attend the dedication.
Attached is a flyer containing the details of the ceremony (click here for flyer), could you please distribute or e-mail to all your colleagues, friends, family, businesses as well as your local health care facilities, clubs, local organizations and schools.
For additional information or to RSVP please call Ms. Angela Como at 609-530-6780 or visit our website at www.nj.gov/military/veterans/wwii_memorial/index.html .
Very truly yours,
William G. Dressel, Jr.
