County Commissioners Recognize Military Appreciation Month

Monmouth County Government

“The Monmouth County Veterans Services Office serves past, present and future veterans by helping them find the benefits and services they have earned as members of the military,” said Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone. “We continue to thank all who have served our nation for their honor, commitment and sacrifice to defend our Country.”

“In Monmouth County, veterans’ assistance includes initiating service-connected compensation and pension claims with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and guiding veterans through the process of gathering medical documentation to support service-connected compensation and pension claims,” said Commissioner Susan M. Kiley, liaison to the Division on Aging, Disabilities and Veterans Services. “Referral services include Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder counseling; individual counseling; group counseling; family counseling; readjustment counseling; bereavement counseling; and employment counseling/vocational rehabilitation.”

Interment services include maintaining records of deceased Monmouth County veterans and handling requests for services from veterans and family members.

I’ve had my dream job of waking up with all the great listeners and members of Brookdale Public Radio since January 3, 2005. Prior to this job, I began my career in radio at NJ 101.5 FM as a producer. From there, I took time off from radio to do other things. (including becoming a mom!)
