December 7, 2021 is the 80th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attacks!

Early in the morning of December 7, 1941, Japanese carrier-based planes and submarines attacked the U.S. Pacific Fleet and nearby military airfields at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The attack marked the entrance of Japan into World War II on the side of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy and the entrance of the U.S. on the side of the allies – thus World War II. The attack was always considered possible but not probable. Were critical judgment errors made by America’s national leaders and its military that made America so vulnerable or did motivations by America’s European allies to have America represented in WW II result in this devastating attack? Listen to this stimulating presentation to find out.

This presentation provides a more in-depth understanding of when a guardianship is needed, the different types of guardianships, the role of court appointed counsel, and the responsibilities and reporting requirements of the guardian. We will also explore options for supported decision making when a guardianship is not appropriate. This presentation will also discuss applying for entitlements like supplemental security income, Medicaid, educational entitlement in the school system, and services through the New Jersey of Division of Developmental Disabilities.
