New Jersey Fallen Heroes Memorial

NJ Fallen Heroes Memorial
In Honor of all those from New Jersey who gave their lives in the fight against terrorism during Operation Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. In Humble gratitude, we remember their sacrifice.
Governor's Message

Welcome to the New Jersey Fallen Heroes Memorial website. Please use this site as a resource and a portal to honor New Jersey's brave men and women in uniform who dedicated their lives to defend our freedom.

All Americans who enjoy the blessings of liberty owe a tremendous debt of gratitude and appreciation to those who serve and have served in the Armed Forces of the United States. Together as a State, we grieve the loss of family, friends and loved ones, but take solace in the knowledge that these soldiers and their valiant sacrifices will never be forgotten.

We are eternally grateful for these fallen heroes, who represent our Nation's greatest values of patriotism, bravery and loyalty. Please take the time to pay tribute to these individuals and I encourage you to visit the beautiful War Memorial Building located in Trenton.

My very best,

Philip D. Murphy

In Memoriam

But on the battlefield their feet stood fast, and in an instant at the height of their fortune, they passed away from the scene, not of their fear, but of their glory.
