“The Marine Memorial Monument at Hampton Beach”

Aurore Eaton, historian, author and newspaper columnist

“Breathe soft, ye winds…” begins the poetic inscription carved on the base of the gray granite Marine Memorial Monument at Hampton Beach that depicts a beautiful young woman sitting on a rock at the edge of the ocean, holding a mourning wreath. The monument honors New Hampshire sailors, soldiers, airmen, and merchant mariners who died at sea during wartime in service to their country. Learn how the monument came to be through the dedicated efforts of one grieving father, and hear the tragic stories of some of the courageous men whose names are memorialized on the monument’s honor roll.
