Be Powerful, Be Heard

A special program to salute present and past members of America's armed forces was held at the National Guard Armory in Lawrenceville May 18, 2005.

The program was part of Attorney General Peter C. Harvey's "Be Powerful, Be Heard" initiative to encourage all eligible New Jersey citizens to register and vote. On hand for the ceremony were members of the New Jersey National Guard, veterans community leaders and other guests and dignitaries. Also taking part in this tribute were members of National Guard units and members of various chapters of the American Legion, the Disabled American Veterans, the Jewish War Veterans and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

Military personnel participated in the television public service announcements encouraging veterans and military personnel around the world to register and vote. The spots will run on New Jersey television and be made available to military installations worldwide via the Internet at http://www.NJElections.org.
