Veterans day

The days may be getting colder and shorter as we head into November, but there's still plenty going on in the Granite State. Morning Edition Host Rick Ganley spoke with NH Magazine's managing editor Erica Thoits about this month's happenings.


In the past few months, the Manchester VA Medical Center met with scandal, disaster, and a full helping of public outcry. Today on Word of Mouth, NHPR's Peter Biello looks back on the summer's news and tells the story of one woman's effort to improve hospital facilities for survivors of military sexual trauma.

Ceremonies were held around the state Tuesday in honor of Veteran’s Day. Governor Maggie Hassan and most of New Hampshire’s congressional delegation paid their respects at an event at the State Veteran’s Cemetery in Boscawen.

About 2,000 people were in attendance for the morning ceremony. Veterans with leather vests and chest-length beards stood alongside trim soldiers on horseback; they and their families listened to top state officials express gratitude for their patriotic service.
