BARNEGAT/WARETOWN, NJ – It’s been many years since a draft was in place in the United States.  At TAPintoBarnegat/Waretown, we’d like to express our thanks to those who served because the law required it. And, of course, our gratitude is immeasurable for anyone who signed up on a voluntary basis to keep America safe. Each and every one of you risked the ultimate sacrifice.

Entering the service or achieving a promotion represents a milestone event. At TAPintoBarnegat/Waretown, we find it more than worthy of publication.  If you follow the directions, you can honor your favorite currently active in the military.  We’re also happy to run feature stories about veterans who served our country in any capacity. Please just email us to set up an interview or learn more.

In the meantime, we’ve done some investigation into some Southern Ocean County businesses offering free or discounted rates for active military and veterans.  If you can add to the list, please let us know and we’ll gladly update throughout the day:
