The Assembly has approved Republican Anthony M. Bucco’s legislation honoring New Jersey cadets and midshipmen. Assembly Bill 225 directs the Adjutant General of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs to identify and issue state flags to state residents enrolled in one of the five United States Military Service Academies.
“We are already so very proud of these outstanding young men and women,” said Bucco, R-Morris and Somerset. “It is fitting we honor them with a state flag as they pursue becoming the finest military officers in the world. They represent the best qualities of our state and its people wherever they serve. They are an inspiration to me and to millions of their fellow New Jerseyans.”
This bill honors each resident of New Jersey enrolled at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York; U.S. Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland; U.S. Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs, Colorado; U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, New York; and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy at New London, Connecticut.
The Assembly unanimously approved the bill 80-0. Assembly Bill 225 is now in the Senate.
