You're invited! Rain or Shine!

In sharing President Eisenhower's 1954 Veterans Day Proclamation - 


" In order to insure proper and widespread observance of this anniversary, all veterans, all veterans' organizations, and the entire citizenry will wish to join hands in the common purpose"


- The Montgomery Veterans Memorial Committee would like to invite everyone to our Special Veterans Day celebration this Nov.11th.

This Veterans Day marks the 7th Celebration at our Memorial, located in Montgomery Veterans Park off of Harlingen Road in Belle Mead.
Veterans Day is about Honoring Those Who Have Served and perhaps nowhere is that more important than in Montgomery!

Our very namesake, General Richard Montgomery, was a distinguished leader who served our country honorably and is widely recognized today as America's first national hero after his courageous efforts in battle and falling on December 31st, 1775 in the Battle of Quebec. See: https://www.veteran.express/montgomery.express.html

The one hour Veterans Day event will include a procession and performance by the Montgomery High School Marching Band and first responders,
presentation of the colors, patriotic speeches by local officials, and much more.  Remarks will be offered by Congressman Leonard Lance, Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli, Joseph Kotch, a member of the Rolling Thunder veterans organization, Montgomery boy scout Srikar Surapaneni and girl scout Julia Garaffa.

This year will include something new: special costumed re-enactors from both the Civil War and WW II era including a President Lincoln Impersonator in full dress. They will be set up near the Veterans Memorial from approximately 10:00am to 2:00pm - well before and after the day's celebration and ceremony.

POW MIA Chair of Honor
Additionally, the POW/MIA CHAIR OF HONOR will be on display. The perpetually empty chair helps everyone to remember those service members who have not yet returned home - some 82,429 unaccounted for as of October 2017.

For the Procession & Ceremony itself - Please plan to arrive by 10:45am as Harlingen Road leading to the upper parking lot in both directions will be closed for the parade.

All are welcome to this family friendly event! The Veterans Memorial as well as the 911 Memorial and all areas of Veterans Park are now fully accessible to those in wheelchairs and with walkers etc. If you arrive early, consider parking at the larger, lower parking lot to leave room at the upper lot for disabled veterans and friends.
