This year NJMOH has been blessed with the support of so many members giving of their time to ensure our forgotten veterans are honored and given a final resting place. Through the efforts of our members, county coordinators, the assistance of so many veterans organizations and rider organizations, NJMOH has become family to 91 abandoned veterans. THANK YOU on behalf of myself and the Executive Committee, without your support NJMOH would not have reached this milestone.
In the coming year, through your continued support NJMOH inter many more abandoned cremains. Already there are three funeral homes with cremains and many more will be cooperating with NJMOH in 2013 to fulfill our Mission.
