Honoring And Thanking Veterans



“Veterans rightly hold a special place in the hearts of New Jerseyans and all Americans. We know that when they sign up for active duty, the reserves or the National Guard, they may be placed in harm’s way, and may pay the ultimate price to serve and protect us. Many leave the service with wounds seen and unseen. To each of them we owe honor and gratitude. As Governor, I’ll see to it that our state government does its part to honor and serve our veterans, who will always have a seat at the table and a voice that will be heard."
-- Jack Ciattarelli

 

  •  Fully investigate the high death and infection rates from Covid-19 in our state-run veterans’ nursing homes, hold those responsible accountable, and ensure nothing like that ever happens again 
  • Preserve funding for military and veterans’ affairs and the earned benefits of veterans
  •  Enact a “veteran is a veteran” policy, providing programs and benefits to all veterans regardless of the dates or location of their service
  •  Partner with the federal government to bring the Governor’s and Mayor’s Challenges to Prevent Suicide Among Service Members, Veterans, and their Families to New Jersey, and provide families and caregivers of veterans who commit suicide bereavement counseling
  • Ensure that chartered 501(c)(19) veterans’ organizations receive their fair share of Covid-19 relief funds or other grants or loans, so that local posts can fully serve veterans and families in need
  •  Create a program to provide loans to small businesses owned or controlled by veteran
  • Eliminate the requirement that a NJ National Guard member serve in federal active duty status to qualify for the veterans' state income tax deduction
