Nashua businesses backing veterans

NASHUA - Wilfred's, the oldest barbershop in the city, will host a day of free haircuts for all veterans on Saturday.

There will be three barbers on duty from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. to service the country's heroes. This will be the barbershop's second year hosting "Salute to our Veterans" event.

Owner and master barber Dave Pothier is a former Marine who served three combat tours. He said the veterans should be well groomed for any events or parades. For more information, visit

The Pinup Angels' care package recipients are typically deployed servicemen and women in all branches. Charlie's Pizzeria Bar & Grill will be providing free pizza and sodas to the veterans. Go to
