The General Baptist Convention of NJ Honors Our Veterans

Deeply felt gratitude, pride, and honor for their service took place at Mount Calvary Missionary Baptist Church in Newark as the General Baptist Convention of NJ celebrated veterans. A resource panel provided information and answered questions concerning healthcare and benefits, Veterans Administration (VA) and private health services, housing, health and life insurance issues, education, training, transportation, and community support.

VA representatives helped veterans use an onsite mobile claim clinic to file claims, check on claim status, and answer questions. State and federal officials; veteran service organizations such as the American Legion, the VFW, the NAACP; and civic groups along with many other sponsors shared information on policy issues and other services.
