WHEREAS, we owe a great debt to those who have served in defense of this nation; and

WHEREAS, throughout the generations, the contributions and sacrifices of our Veterans have preserved the freedoms and way of life enjoyed by the people of the United States; and

WHEREAS, for many, that sacrifice has ended in permanent injury or death, yet the advent of the all-volunteer Armed Forces has proven that there are many who continue to answer that call regardless of the price; and

WHEREAS, in honor of these dedicated men and women, we pledge our continued support and educational efforts directed at our county schools and communities as to the nature and importance of the accomplishments of those who have served in the Armed Forces; and

WHEREAS, the County of Cumberland recognizes the month of November, 2017 as Veterans Appreciation Month and November 11, 2017 as Veterans Day; and

WHEREAS, the County of Cumberland seeks to expand our gratitude through further recognition of the lasting impact that their sacrifices and service have had upon the lives of our county veterans. 

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE BOARD OF CHOSEN FREEHOLDERS OF THE COUNTY OF CUMBERLAND, as follows:

That the Cumberland County Board of Chosen Freeholders, on behalf of the constituents of Cumberland County, New Jersey, do hereby proclaim November, 2017 as Veteran's Appreciation Month and urge all citizens to honor our veterans and rededicate themselves to the preservation of our liberties under the Constitution
