Honoring our Veterans

Annual service honoring the 10th Mountain Division

Today was a special day on the summit. This afternoon, several veterans of the 10th Mountain Division along with their family members, as well as those currently serving, gathered in the rotunda of the NH State Parks Sherman Adams building to commemorate all of the fallen members of the Division. If you are not familiar with the 10th Mountain Division, it is a division of the United States Army headquartered at Fort Drum, NY and currently operates as Light Infantry. Historically, during World War II, it was the 10th Mountain Division that entered combat in 1945 in Italy’s most treacherous, mountainous terrain, and caught the German troops off guard during the night after a steep ascent up the infamous Riva Ridge.

The event atop Mount Washington is an annual occurrence and commemorates all of the veterans of the Division, in addition to those currently serving. Aside from riding up the Cog railway and driving up the Auto Road, some of the attendees lived out the motto of the 10th Mountain Division: Climb to Glory, and hiked to the summit to attend the ceremony. It was certainly a special moment for many. To all of our veterans, and all of those currently serving far and wide, thank you for your service!
