Massachusetts VI

Dedicated in 1987, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Clock Tower is an 85 foot high structure of brick and granite with a gold leaf cupola and a working clock. This is unique among the memorials I have seen.

The base of the tower is 16 feet by 16 feet and is dedicated to the memory of Quincy men who died from wounds suffered during the war in Vietnam.

Located on Victory Lane in Marina Bay, the tower has a quote from JFK.

It lists the 48 from the are that were lost. 

This is in a particularly beautiful setting that does great honor to all those remembered here.

Next time, on the 17th, we will make a trip back to Minnesota, so join me there as always at 9:00am.
