Veterans Day Ceremony

Mayor Raymond Giacobbe and members of the Rahway City Council were honored to join the annual Veterans Day Ceremony hosted by the Rahway Veterans Central Committee at the City’s Veterans Memorial Park. Under beautiful blue skies, the event was very attended by many veterans, including members of American Legion Post 5 and Post 499, as well as community members and many of the City’s employees, including members of Rahway’s Police Department who performed the three-volley salute. Those assembled also enjoyed the musical contributions of Rahway High School’s marching band and a detailed history of Rahway’s proud tradition of military service, presented by the City’s Historian Al Shipley. As Mayor Giacobbe said during his remarks, “it is vital that we keep our veterans at the forefront of our minds, not just today, but every day. It is their courage, selflessness, and sacrifice that keeps each of us as Americans safe, free, and able to exercise our rights.
