The borough of Bernardsville, New Jersey, in conjunction with the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Memorial Post 7858 and Downtown Bernardsville, is honors local soldiers with a program entitled “Bernardsville honors our soldiers.” Bernardsville is part of what’s known as the Somerset Hills in northern Somerset County, New Jersey, which is why the Mr. Local History Project honors this program.
There are currently 31 veterans honored on the banners. They are hung in mid-May through the mid-July for Memorial Day and July 4 and then for Veterans Day in November.
The Mr. Local History Project honors their service and their sacrifice.
