Holmdel Tax Assessor Speaks

Dear Editor:

In the month of May, American citizens are reminded to think of our brave military men and women on Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day. This is a time to recognize and honor those who are currently active in the military, our veterans, and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.

As the father of a son currently stationed in Afghanistan, I would also like to recognize the families of our military who are making a great sacrifice themselves. Every day families are missing their husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters. We owe our servicemen, veterans and military families a debt for their contributions to our nation.

As a Monmouth County Freeholder, I want to inform veterans and their families of the many services offered by the County. Monmouth County Veterans Services Office is a full-service agency that is equipped to aid veterans in applying for benefits and provide information and assistance regarding programs and services. The office is located in Freehold and more information can be obtained by calling (732) 683-8675 or on www.visitmonmouth.com. I encourage all veterans and their families to take full advantage of the services provided by the County. 

I ask all Monmouth County residents to please take a moment to think about the sacrifices made to protect our freedom. All across the world our brave men and women are serving in our military and sacrificing to maintain our freedom. During your memorial day festivities, please think of the gallant service men and women who are defending our nation and have defended our liberty these many years.

Sincerely,

Gary J. Rich

Monmouth County Freeholder
