20th Anniversary 9/11 Ceremony
Dr. Jean Kanokogi, a Federal Agent who responded to Ground Zero the day of the 9/11 terrorist attack on the world trade center, will serve as guest speaker for Hunterdon County’s 20th Anniversary September 11th Remembrance Ceremony, at the Historic Courthouse in Flemington, Sheriff Fred W. Brown has announced.
 
Dr. Kanokogi, the Director of Mental Health and Peer Support Services for the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association, is a Hunterdon County resident, an author, and a Judo expert, will speak about her experiences at Ground Zero on September 11, 2001.
 
Sherriff Brown previously announced that Hunterdon County’s ceremony will remember those who perished from the terrorist attacks, particularly the sixteen Hunterdon County residents lost that day, and will honor the county First Responders who responded to the scene of the attacks on September 11, 2001.

Killed In Action (KIA) Honor Flag To Be Refreshed In Hunterdon County

Commissioners Offer Complimentary KIA Honor Flags To Municipalities 
In recognition of those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the nation, a refreshed Killed in Action (KIA) Honor Flag will soon fly outside the Historic Courthouse in Flemington, and refreshed flags will also be made available to the County’s municipalities, as recommended by Commissioner Zach Rich and approved by the Hunterdon County Board of Commissioners, at the August 3rd Board meeting.
 
Commissioner Rich, the Board’s Veterans liaison, said, “I noticed that the County’s official Killed In Action, KIA, honor flag, raised in 2018, has become tattered and should be refreshed with a new flag.
 
Authorizing a refreshing of the KIA Honor Flag is a fitting acknowledgement of the sacrifices made by the brave men and women in our military, in defense of freedom, and, I believe, is important.”
