The Hunterdon County Veterans Recognition Medal was commissioned by the Board of Chosen Freeholders in 2002. The design for the medal was created by John N. Hatzikalfas of Team Graphics, located in Flemington NJ. Mr. Hatzikalfas is a Hunterdon County resident and a Vietnam War Veteran.
Previous Recognition Ceremonies have been held on June 14, 2003, August 29, 2004, and August 26, 2005. With the 2009 Ceremony, the total number of recipients of the Hunterdon County Veterans Medal exceeds 1400.
The Board of Chosen Freeholders and the citizens of Hunterdon County gratefully acknowledge your personal sacrifice in the protection of our freedom. And, as is appropriately emblazoned on the medal:
We Shall Never Forget
