New Hampshire unveils war memorial for those killed 9/11

The Associated Press

THORNTON (AP) — New Hampshire officials are set to unveil a monument dedicated to those lost fighting in conflicts since 9/11 from wars in Iraq to Afghanistan.

The monument will be revealed on Memorial Day at New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery. The 12-foot-tall granite memorial features four "hero walls" with the names of 50 men mostly killed training for or fighting in conflicts overseas since 9/11.

Vermont has a similar monument and New Hampshire's is designed by the same artist.

The monument will be located on what is called Memorial Way and will join several others celebrating the sacrifices made by soldiers in other wars.

One mother who lost her son in Afghanistan in 2014 said seeing his name on the memorial means his death was not in vain.
