MILITARY AND VETERAN AFFAIRS
On November 5th, 2013, Sgt. Bob Andrzejczak was elected to the New Jersey General Assembly. He is a resident of Middle Township and is a Lower Township and Cape May County native. He joined the Army in 2005 as infantry and went through basic training in Georgia. He was then briefly stationed in Hawaii before being deployed for the first time to Iraq in 2006. While in Iraq, Bob was stationed in Ryad and Hawija. His deployment was initially scheduled for one year, but at Christmas of that year he found out it was to be extended. He was ultimately there for 15 months. Bob was deployed again in 2008, this time to Bayji, Iraq. Just two months into his second deployment, his convoy was attacked, and he was mortally wounded.
