Location of 2016 POW/MIA Watchfire Change

POW/MIA emblemDue to beach restoration/fortification efforts by Seaside Heights, the usual location of the Detachment Watchfire is currently blocked by over 70 tons of sand that is being used to construct dunes. This prevents the Detachment from holding the Annual Watchfire in the usual location at the North end of the Heiring Avenue Boardwalk. The POW/MIA Committee has worked with the town of Seaside Heights to arrange for an alternate location for the Watchfire for this year.

The Watchfire will be held at:

1200 Route 35
Seaside Heights

Time and date are still unchanged.

This is on the BAY SIDE of the peninsula, near American Legion Post 351 (on the opposite side of Route 35). Please contact the Detachment POW/MIA Committee for further information about the location change.
