As we honor our nation’s veterans today, may we remember the purpose of Veteran’s Day.

Today is a celebration to honor America’s veterans for their patriotism, love of country and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

I want to thank all Scotch Plains veterans who served our nation, including my father, who faithfully served our country in the United States Marine Corps.

Michael L. "Mickey" Marcus
Deputy Mayor 
Township of Scotch Plains
