The Semper Fidelis Detachment Color Guard will present the Colors, and a bagpiper from the Emerald Society will perform.

During this year’s ceremony a special recognition will be presented by the Freeholders to Steve Duncan and Randy Fulgham (member of Army Navy Garrison #52) for their service to the veteran’s community.
 
“We invite all of our Veterans and residents to join our ceremony to honor our veterans for their patriotism and service to our country,” said Freeholder Director Sweeney.  “It is important that we take time out of our busy schedules to reflect on our veterans and thank them for their service.  Their dedication to America allows us all to live in a democracy and enjoy the opportunities we have available,” stated Sweeney.
