Gold Star Parent ID Cards Available Now

This fall, Monmouth County Clerk, Christine Hanlon, launched the Gold Star Parent Identification Card to honor the Monmouth County parents and guardians of members of the armed forces who died while on active duty for the United States.

“There are not enough ways to say thank you to the service members who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms and way of life,” said Clerk Hanlon. “My office is proud to provide these cards as a small way to honor their sacrifices and to remind their parents and guardians that the legacies of their sons and daughters will always be remembered.”

Earlier this year, the New Jersey Legislature passed a bill granting County Clerks the authority to issue these Identification Cards to provide Gold Star parents with free access to New Jersey state parks, forests and beaches, and the New Jersey State Museum. In addition, Gold Star Parents in Monmouth County will receive valuable discounts from local retailers through Clerk Hanlon’s “Honoring our Heroes” Military Appreciation Program.
