WESTFIELD - This week U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) delivered the keynote remarks at the deployment ceremony for the New Jersey Army National Guard’s 102nd Cavalry Regiment, C Troop, which is being deployed to the Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa in Djibouti.

“Today, 131 Hackettstown-area residents are being honored as they prepare to be deployed as members of the 102nd Cavalry Regiment in the U.S. Army,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5). “They’ve spent a year sacrificing weekends and vacation time away from their family, friends, and civilian jobs to prepare to serve our country overseas and protect American interests abroad.

The 102nd represents the best of a citizen-force. Police officers, fire fighters, teachers, small business owners, college students – those from every walk of life. You’ve come together in common purpose: to defend the United States of America and everything we represent – our democracy, our freedoms, our strength, and the opportunities that, as inscribed on Lady Liberty, have welcomed generations of “huddled masses yearning to breathe free.”
