Manchester, NH, remembers and honors veterans with service, parade


MANCHESTER - "My grandfather," said veteran, Jason Prewara.

"My dad," said Manchester resident, Diane Drewn.

"Their grandfather," said grandmother of two, Betty Cambell.

It was a day of remembrance in Manchester as hundreds flooded downtown to recognize our service men and women at the annual Veteran's Day parade.

There was a moment of silence at 11 a.m. to recognize the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, marking the end of the First World War.

Drewn says she comes to the parade every year with her son to pay their respects.

"This is what I can do to come out and support them, thank them. Past, present, and future," Drewn said.

Betty Cambell is instilling in her grandchildren how important it is to respect those in uniform.

"Just to let them know that there is people serving the country. It brings up plenty of opportunity to their lives," said Cambell.

The parade ended in Veterans Park where a commemorative service was held for all those who have served.
