MANCHESTER, NH – A new memorial honoring local veterans was unveiled on November 18 outside of Liberty House (corner of Orange and Maple streets) in Manchester.
The Armed Services Memorial includes five stones, each honoring different branches of the US military (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard). It is aligned with Liberty House’s mission to remember, honor and support veterans, and was made possible through the generous support of the following organizations:
- Performance Business Solutions LLC
- Northpoint Roofing LLC
- Swim With a Mission
- Integrated Realty Resources, LLC
- Northpoint Construction Management LLC
“New Hampshire consistently ranks as having one of the highest veteran populations per capita in the nation, and we are privileged to honor these men and women with this fitting Memorial in tribute to all who have served,” said Jeff Nelson, executive director of Liberty House.
The unveiling included a special ribbon-cutting and remarks from Liberty House executive director Jeff Nelson and donors Chuck Thibedeau and Phil Taub. The presentation of colors was conducted by the Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC).
