New Veterans Structure Soon To Be Raised In Cumberland County
We're always on board with anything we hear of that's being done to honor the men and women who've made the tremendous sacrifice to answer the call to serve our country.
We have enormous respect for those who choose to honor the call to service. If you're a longtime listener, then you no doubt are aware that we play the National Anthem every morning as a way to pay homage to our men and women in the armed forces. News has broken that Hopewell Township will soon go above and beyond, too, with the announcement of their plans for a new veterans pavilion.
According to NJ.com, the veterans pavilion will serve as a hosting site for the burials of servicemen and woman who've lost their lives. The pavilion will be on the grounds of Cumberland County's Veterans Memorial cemetery. Apparently, the erection of this site will provide families with a better area for a gravesite ceremony since it's difficult to orchestrate one with the current layout of the cemetery.
Families can expect to see every branch of the military represented in the design as well as all the modern amenities for audio and video features that can be used during a service. No word yet on an anticipated completion date for the pavilion, but the construction plans are finite.
