For some, beginning in 1775 and continuing today, responding to the challenge of citizenship has also meant a period of service in the Armed Forces. More than 1,400 men and women from Concord went to fight in WWII and just about 300 each to Korea and to Vietnam. Today, almost 1,000 Veterans live in Concord. Memorial Day is Concord's opportunity to honor the men and women who, as friends, relatives, neighbors, and comrades served our community and our nation.


The morning ceremony assembles at Rideout Field on Laws Brook Road at 8:30 a.m. and proceeds to Kenneth Dunn Square for the flag raising and brief ceremony at 9 a.m. At 10:30 a.m., the parade re-assembles at Keyes Road for an 11 a.m. step-off for the afternoon ceremonies. The parade proceeds to Monument Square for a brief ceremony and the reading of the Roll of Honor.
