Residents of the New Hampshire Veterans Home paid tribute to the 18th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks during a ceremony at 11 a.m. Wednesday.

The event at the home included video tributes, readings, and the playing of “Taps” in memory of the 2,977 people who died in the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon. Speakers included Col. John Pogorek, commander of the 157th Air Refueling Wing at Pease Air National Guard Base, and Michael Pelletier, State Equal Employment Manager for the Air National Guard, whose nephew was on board American Airlines Flight 11, which crashed into the North Tower of the Trade Center. United Airlines Flight 175 crashed into the South Tower 17 minutes later.
