JACKSON – Celebrate the 12th Annual Wounded Warrior event, hosted by the Central Jersey Rifle and Pistol Club, on October 12 at 9:30 a.m.
Ever since he took office in 2008, Mayor Michael Reina has made it a priority to host the Annual Wounded Warrior parade/ escort each year.
The event will begin at 9 a.m. at the Justice Complex in Jackson. Escorted by Jackson Township Police, Fire, and First Aid, the warriors will make the ride over to the Central Jersey Rifle and Pistol Club on Stump Tavern Road at 9:30 a.m.
Those who wish to participate – residents, organizations, clubs, and volunteers – can line up from the Justice Complex on West Veterans Highway to the Central Jersey Rifle and Pistol Club as a sign of support and to honor our Heroes.
“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. 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,” stated Mayor Reina.
Spectators can safely park their cars along the roads, wave flags or hold banners, and show their support as the parade passes by.
Any agency, club or group wishing to take part and show their support should contact Mayor Reina’s office at 732-928-1200 ext.1211. All Wounded Warriors and Veterans who are interested in attending should email Al Dolce at firstname.lastname@example.org.
