Medical Center Observes Memorial Day 5.26.14: Memorial Day http://nhpr.org/post/52614-memorial-day <p>It’s Memorial Day, a time to remember the men and women who fought and died in military service to the United States. Today on Word of Mouth: those who take remembrance to the next level: the re-enactors. In 1986 there were an estimated 50,000 Civil War re-enactors in the U.S. Since 2000 their ranks have been cut in half. We’ll find out what’s at the root of the secession, and what drives someone to take on the identity of a 19th century solider. Plus, the founder of the Veterans Writing Project talks about harnessing the power of prose to cope with the hidden wounds of war. And, we’ll explore the psychic wounds veterans carry. We’ll talk to an officer who couldn’t forget the horrors of war.</p><p> Mon, 26 May 2014 18:00:00 +0000 Word of Mouth 49059 at http://nhpr.org 5.26.14: Memorial Day Concord Event Celebrates The Art Of Grilling Done Safely http://nhpr.org/post/concord-event-celebrates-art-grilling-done-safely <p align="LEFT" style="margin-bottom: 12px; padding: 0px; border: 0px; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; line-height: 19.5px; vertical-align: baseline; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&nbsp;</p> Thu, 22 May 2014 19:15:26 +0000 Michael Brindley 48978 at http://nhpr.org Concord Event Celebrates The Art Of Grilling Done Safely From The Archives: Memorial Day http://nhpr.org/post/archives-memorial-day <p>Memorial Day is probably the most archives-centric holiday in the year. While many holidays are a flush of personal memories and family traditions, Memorial Day is more about our collective memory as fellow countrymen. And archives are a conduit to our collective memory.&nbsp;</p><p></p> Wed, 21 May 2014 17:57:54 +0000 Andrew Parrella 48882 at http://nhpr.org From The Archives: Memorial Day A Laconia Artist Paints Soldiers at War http://nhpr.org/post/laconia-artist-paints-soldiers-war <p>For this Memorial Day we wanted to tell you about a unique art installation at the New Hampshire National Guard headquarters in Concord.</p><p>It&rsquo;s a series of paintings by <strong>Elaine Morrison</strong> of Laconia, depicting soldiers at war.
