A strong show of support for those called to active duty in the Guard and Reserve was held on Wednesday at the Cape May County Administration Building. Police chiefs and representatives from most of the county’s police departments gathered to sign documents in support of the rights of those called to active military duty in the Guard and Reserve. The Cape May County Herald reports that officials at the ceremony said about 50 percent of those serving our country in combat theaters are Guard and Reserve members. Members of the N.J. Parole Board and N.J. Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, presented Freeholder Director Gerald Thornton with the Seven Seals Award for going above and beyond legal requirements for employees called to active duty.
