The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders invites all residents, especially veterans and their families, to gather at the steps of the Union County Courthouse on Friday, Sept. 18 at 11:15 a.m., and join in the annual POW/MIA Remembrance Day ceremony to honor prisoners of war and those missing in action. New Jersey State Senator Raymond J. Lesniak will deliver the keynote address.
“Please join us in recognizing the sacrifices of our military, and their families and loved ones. Every year, POW/MIA Remembrance Day reaffirms our government’s commitment to ensure that all are accounted for, and to honor those who are no longer with us,” said Freeholder Chairman Mohamed S. Jalloh.
The County Courthouse is located at 2 Broad Street in Elizabeth. In case of rain, the ceremony will be moved inside to Courthouse Rotunda.
