New Jersey dedicated the New Jersey World War II Memorial, located across from the State House in Trenton, on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. From the 63rd Army Band to the flyover by the 177th Fighter Wing, Soldiers and Airmen from the New Jersey Army and Air National Guard were involved in nearly every aspect of the ceremony. The Memorial will serve as a fitting remembrance to honor the Greatest Generation and the New Jerseyans who made the ultimate sacrifice to save the world from tyranny.
