Thank you for your service!

Robbinsville Township embraces its Veterans from all branches of service, and has created this web page as a resource to help guide our heroes through the various departments on the Federal, State and County level.

SC-coffee with a veteran-2021

According to the 2012 U.S. Census brief, Veterans age 65 or older numbered in excess of 12.4 million. These Veterans served in conflicts around the world, including World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Persian Gulf and Syria.

Robbinsville Township Mayor Dave Fried, Administration and Township Council are very proud of its unwavering committment to Veterans and our rich military history, which includes an active American League Post 530 and the Doughboy memorial at the junction of Route 33 and Route 526.

The 17-foot war Doughoy statue stands atop a 10-foot, square pedestal inscribed with the names of men from then-Washington Township, who served in World War I and World War II. The statue was unveiled on October 16, 1920 and recently celebrated its Centennial.

In May, Robbinsville unveiled a designated parking spot for active and retired veterans at the Township Municipal Building, Senior Center, Police Department and Fire Department.
On November 14, the Township was presented with The New Jersey Governor's "We Value Our Veterans" Community Award by the Honorable Philip D. Murphy "... In grateful appreciation of the town's promotion of military-friendly environment for veterans of our State."
