Christmas in July

Soldiers and Airmen of the New Jersey National Guard along with their families, as well as Sailors from Naval Weapons Station Earle and residents from Veterans Memorial Home at Menlo Park were treated by Jersey Mike's Subs to Christmas in July on board the Battleship New Jersey, located at Camden, N.J., June 3, 2012. After remarks by Brig. Gen. Michael L. Cunniff, the Adjutant General and Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, there were performances by the 63rd Army Band, Corey Wagar, the USO Liberty Bells and Holiday Express. Lt. Gov. Guadagno, Gold Star Mother Ruth Stonesifer and Capt. David J. Harrison, commander, Naval Weapons Station Earle, laid a wreath in memory of fallen service members off the New Jersey's port stern. The event was held to raise awareness for Wreaths Across America, which for more than 20 years, has placed holiday wreaths on the headstones at Arlington National Cemetery.
