Grateful for our Veterans

The American Legion is the nation’s largest wartime veterans service organization. Veterans Day is to honor living veterans. Often those veterans in nursing homes are forgotten. For the past several years, F.W. Grigg Post 68 members have visited local nursing homes on Veterans Day so those veterans aren’t forgotten. Post members are committed to mentoring youth, sponsorship of wholesome community programs, advocating for patriotism, promoting strong national security and devotion to our fellow service members and veterans. The Camden County Board of Freeholders and Veteran's Advisory Board will hold a Veterans Day Ceremony this Sunday, November 10th at 1:00 p.m. at Veterans Island in Cooper River Park on N. Park Drive.
