In support of veterans across of the state, Senator Christopher J. Connors, Assemblyman Brian E. Rumpf and Assemblywoman DiAnne C. Gove want to raise awareness that April 9th through 15th of each year is New Jersey POW-MIA Week of Remembrance.

The State Week of Remembrance was established through bipartisan legislation authored by the 9th District Legislative Delegation signed into law in June of 2005.  The Delegation’s intent was to pay public tribute to the thousands of men and women who have suffered as prisoners of war or who remain missing in action.

As provided under the Week of Remembrance statute, “the Governor and the Legislature shall annually call upon its citizens to join with citizens of all states in recalling those who were prisoners of war or are missing in action, in remembering the suffering their families have endured and are enduring, and in honoring the memory of those who have made the supreme sacrifice.”

To more effectively represent their constituency, a large segment of who are veterans, members of the 9th District Delegation serve on the Senate and Assembly Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committees.
