Massachusetts XI

Dedham, Massachusetts is a suburb of Boston and sits, nearly, on the WSW border of the city.

This memorial is found in the Brookdale Cemetery.

Honored all the men and women who served and the six from the area that were lost, including a Medal of Honor recipient.

Below the names are a pair of hands, bound by barbed wire to, remember the POW's.

The center feature  includes a map of 'Nam and various representative components of the war.

On the back of the memorial is a full sized figure of soldier, on either side of him are wreaths.

The memorial may be found along Brookdale Avenue.

Next time, on the 21st, we will take a trip back to Mississippi to see more Faces of Remembrance, so as always, join me there at 9:00am.
