NASHUA - Inclement weather canceled the annual Nashua Veterans Day Parade, but it didn't stop a small group from gathering a middle school to celebrate the tradition.

Presidential candidate and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham greeted veterans and Mayor Donnalee Lozeau gave her final thank you before leaving office at the end of her term.

Among those in attendance, a man drafted in 1969 at the height of Vietnam War.

"I wouldn't have done anything differently," said Retired Air Force Lt. Colonel Clif Banner.

Banner flew B-52 bombers, eventually training others, and going on to work in the Pentagon.

"I would not have made it through 23 years without the support of family," Banner said.

He and his wife traveled the country for nearly two decades, and say it was their duty to their country.
