Veterans of New Jersey - it matters

A resident of Bergen County, New Jersey, Lance Maiden is a father of three with a background in culinary arts. He is a veteran of the United States Air Force and was trained as a food service specialist, having been stationed at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada, from 1986-1990.

Lance takes special pride in working with the military and veteran community, receiving a certification as a Military Relocation Professional (MRP) in 2017.

Veterans of New Jersey is a Facebook group, listed with the New Jersey State Office of Military and Veteran Affairs, that Lance founded in August 2018. The group has grown to over 2,200 members. Members are enlisted and officers, former and also currently serving in the National Guard and reserves. The group is now also listed on social media including LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter, and has even helped with American Legion recruitment efforts. We have partnered and shared with other veterans groups including the DAV, AMVETS, VFW and the Marine Corps League.

Lance is a proud American Legion member for the past eight years at Post 310 in Little Ferry, and felt his group would help brings veterans from across the state together, as it most certainly has, to help each other in many ways, such as locating jobs, starting a new career, starting up a veteran-owned business, moving on and helping with higher education at Rutgers University and Fairleigh Dickinson Universities.

The group has helped with VA service connection benefits with area veteran service officers, doing a weekly “Buddy Check” and providing support and assistance for those in need with the Vet Center. Most importantly, helping create new friendships and improved veteran camaraderie throughout Bergen County and the other counties of the State of New Jersey.
