09/26/2014 - 09/28/2014 NJ Run for the Fallen - The New Jersey Run for the Fallen is a compilation of active-duty military runners and support crew whose mission is clear and simple: To run one mile for every New Jersey service member killed as a result of serving during the War on Terror including Operation Iraqi Freedom, Enduring Freedom and New Dawn. Each mile of sweat and pain and each flag saluted, is to pay homage to one service member’s life and their family.  The last weekend of September we run across New Jersey to raise awareness for the lives of those who fought and died, to rejuvenate their memories, keep their spirits alive, to aid in the healing process of the New Jersey Gold Star families and to bring attention to New Jersey residents of the high cost of freedom.

10/03/2014 VA Congressional Investigative Hearing - open to public - Pemberton - Philadelphia's Veterans Affairs benefits office, which has been under national scrutiny for months, is scheduled to be the focus of a congressional investigative hearing in New Jersey on Oct. 3. The hearing of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs is set to probe whether administrators at the Germantown office have corrected problems that came to light this summer when whistle-blowers alleged widespread mismanagement there, organizers said. It will also delve into the facility's "management and leadership, claims processing, and employee morale," according to an invitation sent to the head of the VA and the agency's inspector general by Rep. Jon Runyan (R., N.J.), chairman of the subcommittee on disability assistance and memorial affairs. The benefits office - which processes claims for parts of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware, and pensions for more than a dozen states - is being investigated by the VA Office of Inspector General on allegations that staff manipulated dates on claims to hide delays. Kristen Ruell, a whistle-blower who has worked at the office for seven years and has previously testified before lawmakers, said she had been invited to speak. Representatives from the VA and Inspector General's Office are also expected to attend, according to a staffer from the House committee. The hearing is open to the public and scheduled for 11 a.m. at Burlington County College's Pemberton Campus, 601 Pemberton-Browns Mills Rd., Pemberton Township.   Read more at

After deciding that he did not want to attend college at that time, he applied for the Philadelphia Fire Department and began the Fire Academy in July 2006. In February, 2007, he was assigned to Ladder 10 at Kensington and Castor Avenues. Early on Easter Monday morning, April 9, 2012, Ladder 10 was dispatched to a 5-alarm warehouse fire. After the fire was declared under control, Daniel and his company were checking the interior of a furniture store. While they were in the store, the warehouse wall collapsed, killing Daniel and his lieutenant. The Daniel Sweeney Memorial Scholarship Fund was established when kind-hearted citizens sent the family money. The purpose of the fund is to assist families whose children are attending an Archdiocesan high school. The Firefighter Daniel Sweeney Memorial Scholarship is open to all students, without regard to race, sex, national origin or religious beliefs. Our only intent is to help families with the education of their children.
