Resolution regarding Fort Monmouth assistance program passes committee

A resolution urging Congress to create a federally funded program to assist veterans at Fort Monmouth was approved  Thursday in the Senate Military and Veterans’ Affairs Committee.

SR82, which is sponsored by Sens. Sean Kean, (R-11), Wall Township, and Jennifer Beck, (R-12), Red Bank, comes in the wake of the impending closure of the U.S. Military Academy Preparatory School at Fort Monmouth.

The resolution states there is an opportunity to reinvent the center as a post-deployment assistance center administered by veterans groups and medical staff.
