An overflow crowd of flag waving Veterans and their family members united in honoring Hunterdon County’s 2018 Veterans Recognition Medal Class, who were saluted for their service to the nation by Hunterdon County officials, at the Opening Ceremonies of the County’s 4H and Agricultural Fair, in Ringoes, on August 22nd.
Special guest speaker Congressman Leonard Lance noted, “Hunterdon County has always done more than its share in responding to the nation’s call and done so proudly. President Abraham Lincoln called our nation ‘the last best hope of mankind,’ and it remains so today due to your service, and that of those who never returned home, and those who are serving now.”
Freeholder Board Director Matt Holt told the assemblage, “On behalf of my fellow Freeholders, our constitutional officers and our legislators, I extend our heartfelt appreciation to all the medal recipients, and to all the Veterans in attendance. It is our honor to be amongst you today. Thank you for your service.”
