Honoring New Hampshire's Veterans

As we mark the sacrifice of those who died to protect our freedom, we also thank those veterans who came home. In New Hampshire, we live among more than 120,000 of these heroes. Based on estimates compiled by the U.S. Census Bureau's 2007 American Community Survey, the Josiah Barlett Center for Public Policy has put together the following graph showing when New Hampshire's veterans served:
NH Veterans by Date of Service
NH Veterans by Date of Service Grant Bosse This graph shows the number of New Hampshire veterans and when they served. It was prepared by the Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy Lead Investigator Grant Bosse, and released on Memorial Day, May 25, 2009.
These estimates, which were part of the U.S. Census Bureau's 2007 American Community Survey, show that more than 15,000 World War II veterans are still living in New Hampshire. More than 16,000 served during Korea, nearly 40,000 during Vietnam, 14,000 during the First Gulf War, and 6,600 since 2001. THese figures include all veterans, regardless of where they served or combat status. In total, the estimated 122,000 New Hampshire veterans represent one in every nine Granite Staters.
To all New Hampshire veterans, thank you for your service.
