New Jersey Governor Jon S. Corzine shakes hands with some of New Jersey’s newest veterans, Soldiers from the 250th Brigade Support Battalion, before giving the keynote speech at the Veteran’s Day Memorial ceremony at the Brigadier General William C. Doyle Veterans Cemetery. The ceremony took place on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. on the patio of the chapel.

The Veterans Day ceremony honored New Jersey veterans who have served in the United States Armed Forces. The ceremony included a flag retirement service, wherein the ashes of 2,000 flags were entombed.
