Josiah Bartlett Center Releases "Veterans In New Hampshire"
Charts service of Granite State's 122,000 Veterans

(CONCORD) As the nation marks Memorial Day, the Josiah Bartlett Center for Public Policy today released its latest report, "Veterans in New Hampshire", which charts the service of the Granite State's 122,000 veterans.

Using information from the U.S. Census Bureau, the Josiah Bartlett Center estimates that over 122,000 veterans currently live in New Hampshire. 124 veterans served prior to World War II, 13,600 during World War II, more than 41,5000 during the Vietnam Era, and 6,600 since September 2001. The U.S. Census Bureau bases its estimates the annual American Community Survey, and calculates that 122,646 veterans lived in New Hampshire as of 2007, the last year for which data is currently available. The overall survey results have a margin of error of +/- 4,350.

"As we remember those who gave their lives to defend our freedom, we're proud to salute those heroes who came home," said Lead Investigator Grant Bosse, who authored the report. "We're proud to live among the thousands of our neighbors who put their lives on the line to defend America and make the world a safer place."
