Soldiers shouldn't need no stinking badges to get on the beach

And they won't have to buy them if Casey Loundy's campaign succeeds. The recent graduate of Point Pleasant Beach High School began a campaign to get service-members free access to Jersey beaches. At the moment it's not legal for municipalities to do so. Loundy has persuaded several members of the Legislature to sponsor a bill that would change permit the practice. That bill has passed both houses and awaits the governor's signature. Enjoy the above video, which is narrated by another Casey of my acquaintance.
