  TOMS RIVER – In recognition of Veterans Day, members of the Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders placed a wreath at a monument commemorating World War I, World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, one of many markers located at the Ocean County Administration Building at Hooper Avenue and Washington Street, Toms River, acknowledging the service of our veterans to our Country, who work to preserve peace and protect our freedoms.

  Ocean County is home to the largest veteran population in the state of New Jersey. This year marked the 75th anniversary of the ending of World War II.
