This is the third consecutive year for this event, which is sponsored by Fort Hamilton Family, Morale, Welfare and Recreation (www.HamiltonMWR.com)
“Being from a music and military family I appreciate Mission One Voice and C*A*M*M*O and the work they do for our service members and their families,” said Bigg Marv of A & E Networks’ Hammertime.
“Family Morale and Welfare has been providing valuable programs to service members and their families for decades and for over 5 years we have been together,”
C*A*M*M*O Executive Director Cathie Lechareas echoed Lerer’s comments. “As we prepare to celebrate 236 years of our country’s independence, what better time than now to say thank you to those who continue to ensure that we are a free people. We owe them so much!”
Invited guests include soldiers from Fort Hamilton, the joint base Fort Dix, McGuire Air Force, Lakehurst Naval Station and the National Guard and Reserves units in the area, police and fire personnel, government employees, The Wounded Warrior Program and soldiers from West Point and Picatinny Arsenal, and their families, as well as all active duty military personnel, retirees and veterans, and their families.
All activities will take place at Fort Hamilton’s newly dedicated Sgt. Deon Taylor Ball Fields. Gates open for the general public at 4 p.m. and the concert will begin promptly at 6 p.m. Access and parking at the venue are extremely limited so it is recommended that attendees use public transportation wherever possible.

Bring valid identification (driver’s license, passport, or other photo ID) to gain entry at the gate (no exceptions, for security reasons).
