Dedicated in June 2002, it is located on Skyline Drive at Green Hill Park in Worcester. The 4-acre location includes a pond, walking paths and the Memorial. A place to provide a dignified, quiet, natural location for reflection and learning. The Memorial is designed in three sections called places. These consist of the place of flags, place of words and place of names. The place of words shows text from letters written home by some of the soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who died in Vietnam. The place of names proclaims in stone the name of each and every Massachusetts resident who died in combat or as a result of wounds received while in action in Vietnam.
Although this Memorial especially honors and remembers the service and sacrifice of those from Massachusetts who gave their lives and freedom in Vietnam, it is dedicated to all those from the Commonwealth who served their country between 1955 and 1975.
