State leaders gather for Veterans Day service at NH Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen


BOSCAWEN - The sound of rain drops and taps playing in the distance is all that could be heard as a crowd of hundreds fell silent to honor the brave men and women of our armed forces.

A sea of umbrellas huddled together at the New Hampshire Veterans Cemetery, as the Gov. Hassan and the state's Washington delegation thanked veterans and their families for their service.

It's an opportunity for those like Vietnam veteran Ron Delisle to reflect, and share their stories with family.

“I'm proud to have served and people honoring it, it's overwhelming,” Delisle said.

Flags are placed along the graves of the more than 5,000 New Hampshire service men and women who fought for our freedom, many fighting alongside Delisle.

“There's quite a few and there's more coming because we're at that age where we all have our spot here reserved,” Delisle said.
