AIA New Jersey Remembers Those Who Have Died Serving in the American Armed Forces

This year marks the 150th anniversary of Memorial Day and the 100th anniversary of World War I.

While we may internalize our experience in our hearts and minds, we also create and seek places to gather with others and places to find peace. Places of remembrance. Places with symbols. Places of history. Memorial Sites created to unify our experience of appreciation as we remember. We invite you to join in a local ceremony this year.


We thank those who have served, those who have died, and their families and loved ones.

Your sacrifice will not be forgotten.
