20 Oct: Whelan To Introduce Package Of Bills To Honor Veterans’ Sacrifices

TRENTON – Senator Jim Whelan announced plans to introduce a package of bills designed to honor the sacrifices of New Jersey’s veterans, whether it’s making life easier for a disabled vet or Purple Heart recipient, or allowing private citizens to take a moment to remember a fallen soldier.

“There’s no question that the battlefield is a dangerous place, but our vets are willing to push past the danger, and in some cases sacrifice so much in service to our nation,” said Senator Whelan, D-Atlantic. “For those who are called on to risk life or limb, these bills make life a little easier, relaxing parking fees and ensuring that, if killed in the line of duty, they are properly memorialized by their home state. These small gestures hopefully amount to a big thank you to our State’s veterans.”
