SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- As part of the New Jersey Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (NJDMAVA) continuing outreach efforts, the agency has a new edition of its Veterans Benefits Guide.

Many New Jersey Veterans are unaware of the numerous federal and state program benefits, entitlements and services they have earned in defense of our nation. For more information about the program visit www.nj.gov/military/veterans.

Earlier this year, Scotch Plains Township became the first municipality in Union County to achieve 'Veteran-Friendly' status after passing a resolution complying with new standards set by the New Jersey State Veterans Chamber of Commerce.
