A Place of Remembrance
The New Hampshire State Veterans' Cemetery
At Exit 17, on Interstate 93 in NH, there is an opportunity to start your legacy.
There is a place where white granite memorials breathe life into historical events.
There is a place where simple headstones give specific but poignant messages.
There is a place where the names of the missing in action
personalize our obligation to NEVER FORGET.
There is a place where quiet reflection, the scent of flowers,
the beauty of greenery and a sense of peace have been secured
with horrific but necessary war.
There is a place where words like Freedom, Loyalty, Honor,
Duty and Patriotism have flesh and blood meanings.
There is a place where the colors, Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Purple
are Medals of Distinction and Integrity.
There is a place where female and male military members rest in peace
side-by-side because they are veterans.
There is a place where the fluttering of flags reminds us
that we are Americans, not political parties.
There is a place where red states and blue states are simply United States.
There is a place where a spoken word of thank you resonates
through hundreds of silent graves.
There is a place where the wind through the trees seems
to echo the last words of our warriors.
There is a place where the haunting sounds of taps
never fails to bring tears of pride and dignity.
There is a place where you can become part of
a growing community of involvement.
This place, the New Hampshire State Veterans' Cemetery
in Boscawen, NH is offering you an opportunity.

This place needs you to remember.
