Veterans Day tributes

The Andover Townsman

---- — Andover honored its veterans with a string of Sunday morning ceremonies on Veterans Day.

As part of its ceremonies, the town dedicated two memorials at Spring Grove Cemetery. A “Twentieth-Century Veterans Memorial” was unveiled at the existing Spring Grove Veterans Burial Lot and a “Veterans Memorial at Spring Grove” was dedicated to mark a future Spring Grove Veterans Burial Lot.

At noon, 20 Andover World War II veterans were honored at the Ballardvale Green with the presentation of the town’s fourth “Heroes Among Us” book. The book is dedicated to each veteran and tells the stories about their service during World War II and after.
