Military Service Medal Applications

Applications are being accepted now and you will be notified about 1 week before as to the time and place of the Medal presentation. Those who do not wish to attend a public presentation can fill out the application and check “NO” on the form. When your certificate is ready you will be notified to come to the Veteran Services. Office for a one on one presentation. We do not mail medals.

The next Military Service Medal Ceremony will be held on November 13, 2014.  The program starts at 6:00 pm Veterans and families should arrive earlier at the Salem Community College.  The ceremony was created to express the Counties gratitude by honoring its residents who served on active duty with any branch of our regular active armed forces and were separated under “Honorable Conditions.”  Veterans or families interested in recognizing a family member posthumously may complete a service medal application.




Veterans’ Outreach will be held on November 6, 2014 at the Salem Community College.  Over 23 vendors will be on hand to assist and provide information to our Salem County Veterans’.  For more information contact the Veterans Office at 856-339-8603.
