Firefighter cadets sit together during a swearing in ceremony into the Newark Fire Department, Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012, in Newark, N.J. Twenty-eight of the 31 cadets served in the U.S. military fighting in Afghanistan or Iraq. The veterans were recruited through the GI Go Fund, a nonprofit New Jersey-based organization that helps provide assistance for veterans. The group worked with Mayor Cory Booker to open a Veterans Center in Newark City Hall. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez) less
