It is a fantastic new addition to Toms River and Ocean County, it's the "Protectors of Freedom" sculpture and gardens. The project, developed by the Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation, honors the men and women of our military. The project was done by renowned artist Brian Hanlon. The sculpture captures our U.S. Military over the last 100 years on the world stage .... protecting freedom for everyone!

I was fortunate enough to be at the dedication ceremony Monday and it was fantastic! Local officials, lawmakers, residents and military were all on hand for the unveiling of this truly wonderful addition to our community and I urge everyone to go and walk through the gardens and take in the history and pride that is shown here.

The Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation "Protectors of Freedom Monument" is located on Route 571 East in the Bey Lea Park in Toms River.

Here's a look at the new "Protectors of Freedom"
