Hunterdon County 2022 Veteran’s Recognition Medal Ceremony to be held on Veterans Day

The Annual Ceremony Will Be Held In Person For Veteran’s Being Recognized And Livestreamed For Family And Friends To View

HUNTERDON COUNTY, NJ – The annual Hunterdon County Veteran’s Recognition Medal Ceremony is scheduled for Veteran’s Day, November 11 at 1:00 p.m., and will be held in person after two years, welcoming back Veteran’s to participate in the award ceremony, and will also be livestreamed, Commissioner Deputy Director Zachary T. Rich said.

Commissioner Rich, the Board’s Co-Veteran’s liaison, said, “The annual ceremony was switched during 2020 from the Hunterdon County 4-H Fair to a virtual event on Veteran’s Day to protect the health and safety of the veterans and all participants. This year the ceremony will take place at the County’s Route 12 Complex, in order to accommodate all of the veteran recipients and one guest. Being in a larger venue allows for more people to have distance between them to keep everyone in attendance safe.”

“The livestreamed event was a great success the past two years and being able to continue sharing it with family and friends all over the world is something multiple recipients have asked us to do,” Rich said.

“Communications will be sent out to each medal recipient with information about attending the medal presentation and also how it can be viewed online on November 11th,” Rich said.

“Being able to bring our veterans back to a live event is exciting and we look forward to presenting each of those who served our nation with the recognition medal they have earned,” Rich said.
