Flags are at half-staff across the Granite State Thursday to honor former U.S. Sen. Warren Rudman, who passed away last week.

Rudman, who served two terms as a Republican Senator for New Hampshire, was 82 when he passed away Nov. 19. He served from 1980 to 1993. 

A memorial service for Rudman will be held in Washington D.C. Thursday. Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. John McCain and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid are among the lawmakers expected to be in attendance. The service starts at 4:50 and will be broadcast live on C-SPAN, both on TV and online.
