Union County Honors POW/MIA

Union County, NJ — The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders invites all County residents and visitors to gather with veterans and their families at the plaza in front of the Union County Courthouse on Friday, September 15 at 11:00 a.m., and join in the annual POW/MIA Remembrance Day ceremony to honor prisoners of war and those missing in action.

“Though the scars of past wars will never fully heal, I hope that this ceremony provides a measure of comfort and support to those who are seeking answers and closure,” said Freeholder Bruce H. Bergen. “By coming together as one community, we reaffirm our pledge to advocate for a thorough accounting of all POW/MIA.”

The County Courthouse is located at 2 Broad Street in midtown Elizabeth, with convenient access to train and bus service. Ample public parking is available.

In case of rain, the ceremony will be moved inside to Courthouse Rotunda.
