JACKSON – Jackson Township will host the 11th annual Wounded Warrior Parade on October 13 at 9:30 a.m. The event, hosted by the Central Jersey Rifle and Pistol Club, celebrates our American freedoms by honoring those who have served.

Veterans will assemble at the Jackson Justice Complex at 9 a.m. The parade will begin here and end at the Central Jersey Rifle and Pistol Club. These Warriors will be escorted along the parade route by Jackson Township Police Department, Jackson Township Volunteer Fire Companies, Jackson Township First Aid, various motorcycle groups, and others.

Those who wish to show their support can line up from the Justice Complex on West Veterans Highway to the Central Jersey Rifle and Pistol Club to honor our Wounded Warriors en route.

“The freedoms we enjoy as Americans have been purchased and maintained at a high price throughout our history. We owe a great debt to those who have served in defense of our nation. For many, their sacrifice has ended in permanent injury,” said Mayor Michael Reina. “It has been a true honor to ride alongside these heroes each year as we escort them. Showing your support will only take a few minutes out of your day but will provide a lasting memory for these heroes.”
