Two things..just store the form inputs on submit in session variables ans just let them be filled in form fields. This way you can save them for latter use and the form values would be retained.

Also if you don't want to submitt on wrong date just change the code i.e

if (!validDates(effectiveDate))
{
  alert("Please select a Valid Date");
  return true;
}

to

if (!validDates(effectiveDate))
{
  alert("Please select a Valid Date");
  return false;
}

Hope you got it!
