I didn’t make that prediction until the early morning of Election Day when I got a phone call reporting two hour long lines in the Republican areas of Ohio before the polls opened. Tommy wants me to make my 2020 prediction 14 hours earlier.
Plans are well underway to build a monument that will be located on the property of the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Holmdel, which will honor the sacrifices of families who have lost a loved one in defense of the United States. The project is being spearheaded by the New Jersey Run For The Fallen. Hopes are to have the New Jersey Gold Star Family Monument in place and dedicated by the middle of 2014.
The monument will serve as a place of reflection and remembrance for all but especially for those whose loved one made the ultimate sacrifice for their county. Gold Star parents Ken and Helen Gurbisz of Eatontown are co-chairing the committee to develop a design, fund and build the monument. Mr. Gurbisz noted that “We are getting very close to a final design which we hope to unveil at the Gold Star Mothers holiday luncheon on the 7th of December.” .
