GILFORD — The Gilford Public Library will host a presentation on Thursday, November 7 from 6:30-7:30 p.m.focusing on a number of New Hampshire men who never returned home after World War II.

Author Aimee Gagnon Fogg will discuss her recently published book, The Granite Men of Henri-Chapelle. A Nashua native, Fogg grew up hearing stories about her Great-Uncle, PFC Paul Lavoie, who was killed in action in Germany. He now rests among 7,992 WWII soldiers at the Henri-Chapelle American Military Cemetery in Belgium.

After a pilgrimage to the site, she learned that 37 other NH men were also buried there. Her book is an attempt to remember each of the NH men as well as capture the essence of the person behind the military rank.

Fogg emphasizes in her introduction that the book is meant to allow each man an opportunity to share his life once again, a life he sacrificed in the pursuit of liberty for his fellow man.
