ROBBINSVILLE, NJ -- To help local veterans identify and receive the benefits and services they deserve and are entitled to, Robbinsville Township used Veterans Day to announce the creation of a page on the municipal website specifically pitlikg Veterans services "as a resource to help guide our heroes through the various departments on the Federal, State and County level."
According to the U.S. Census, New Jersey is home to more than 350,000 veterans; of which 14,500 live in Mercer County.
The website includes links to programs such as the New Jersey Income Tax Deduction for Veterans; Property Tax Deduction Form; VA health care and home aid; and understanding a veteran with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD.)
Robbinsville is home to the American Legion Post #530 as well as the iconic Doughboy statue. The 17-foot Doughboy statue honoring the local men who served in World War I and World War II stands prominently at the junction of Route 33 and Route 526 in Robbinsville. Unveiled on October 16, 1920, the statue's centennial will be commemorated next October.
The new Robbinsville Veterans Services website can be found at: www.robbinsville-twp.org/services/veterans_services.php.
