New Jersey's Mission Of Honor


Mission Statement:


The purpose of the New Jersey's Mission of Honor for Cremains of American Veterans is to locate, identify and inter the orphaned and abandoned cremains of American veterans through the joint efforts of Veteran Organizations throughout New Jersey. To provide honor and respect to those who have served this country in time of peace and conflict.

Our Objectives:

New Jersey's Mission of Honor is a state wide effort to inter the orphaned and abandoned Veteran cremains.

Cremains? Sorry, but that is just awkward and creepy.


This task will be executed through the combined efforts of veteran organizations throughout New Jersey. Local, state and national laws must be followed in the identification, claiming process and proper interment of the unclaimed remains of orphaned and abandoned veterans. Local funeral homes, crematoriums, hospitals, senior homes, veteran homes and prisons will be participating in this project.

The Department of Military And Veterans Affairs will assist in identifying the orphaned and abandoned veteran cremains along with interring the cremains at the General Doyle State Veterans' Cemetery. Also the Veterans Administration will be helping to determine the cremain status for interment.

This will be a lengthy project and will require many man-hours to ensure that we have done our utmost to discover every forgotten veteran in New Jersey and procure each a dignified resting place. This will also be a labor of love, a task of redemption, for a debt of service that can never be repaid.

The New Jersey Mission of Honor will consist of a network of individuals working with local Funeral Homes, State, and National Agencies to ensure that, from now on, the cremated remains of any unclaimed veteran will be identified, claimed and interred in a timely manner. This will be an ongoing project and is a cooperative effort between many voluntary service organizations.

The New Jersey Mission of Honor will be a long-term project, but not a time sensitive project. Our hope is to identify and inter every orphaned and abandoned veteran.

This endeavor is a labor of love and respect. For those of you who would like to make a donation to this project please mail to:

With just a $100.00 donation we would be able to purchase a urn to honorably inter these war veterans. The corresponding military branch of the service will be placed on each urn for each veteran cremain that the Mission inters.

About Me

My photo
First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
