The Associated Press

BOSCAWEN — While many N.H. communities marked Memorial Day last weekend and Monday, another ceremony is planned at the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery.

The cemetery staff and the American Legion are hosting the event in Boscawen on Saturday. Gov. Maggie Hassan is scheduled to speak, and will also attend a small ceremony before the event to present the families of Army Capt. Shawn Hogan and Marine Cpl. Brandon Garabrant with the N.H. Medal of Honor.

Hogan died in 2012 during a training exercise in Kentucky. Garabrant was killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan last year.

Hassan also has directed flags to half-staff on Saturday.
