Ewing, NJ … The College of New Jersey athletic program would like to extend its praise and thanks to

those brave men and women who put themselves in harm’s way each day so that we can all live safely.

 

Memorial Day provides all of us with an opportunity to take a step back from our day-to-day lives and remember those who have served this great country and the many who paid the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our freedom. We are also fortunate to have so many great men and women today who are serving our military and protecting our country both at home and abroad.

 

Earlier this spring, the Lions baseball program hosted Military Day during a conference double-header against Ramapo College, which was led by head baseball coach Dean Glus. Glus, along with the assistance of Lieutenant Colonel Patrick Mangin, invited the Color Guard from The College of New Jersey's Army Officer Education Program.
