“Veteran’s Day is about honoring those who have decided to serve something greater than themselves,” said Prestidge. “Their choice to serve and protect this great nation offers a renewed sense of faith in what America stands for and to what lengths the men and women of the armed services are willing to go to protect it.”

Members of the training center’s ceremonial staff, as well as Capt. Prestidge, will be attending multiple events throughout Cape May County this Veteran’s Day.
