This Memorial Day, Remember New Jersey’s War Dead

PHOTO: New Jersey veterans of the Korean War at the official state memorial, a unique monument located on the Atlantic City Boardwalk.

Memorial Day Weekend is an opportunity to enjoy food, fun and sun with friends and family, Save Jerseyans.

First and foremost, most of you aren’t working today because we’re remembering those who died to preserve our American “liberties,” including the rights to own private property, freely practice religion, vote our will and yes, criticize our leaders on web blogs.

So throughout today’s Memorial Day celebrations and commemorations across the state, let’s pay special attention to those who served and died from the Garden State.

Below the fold, we’ve posted a partial list of names in honor of New Jersey’s fallen sons and daughters from the conflict in Afghanistan and both Iraq wars (h/t VetFriends.com – visit their site to find friends and family lost in earlier wars, too).

Please correct me in the comments, Save Jerseyans, if a fallen soldier is absent from the list. I don’t believe it includes recent casualties from late 2011, early 2012.

May God bless and keep them on Memorial Day 2012 and always!
