OCS of South Jersey

About This Chapter

Our Community Salutes of South Jersey (OCSSJ) is a non-profit organization created to recognize and honor graduating high school students (and their parents) who plan to enlist in the armed services after graduation.

Local citizens, veteran’s organizations, and private businesses donate their time and money to support events sponsored by OCSSJ, including our annual Enlistment Recognition Ceremony.


We’re proud to provide support from our sponsors who have an interest in serving the needs of your our military community.  Contact us to see what opportunities can help your brand reach the enlistees and families of our communities.
