Vietnam Veterans' Memorial

Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans' MemorialThe Massachusetts Vietnam Veterans' Memorial was dedicated in June of 2002 and is located at Green Hill Park in Worcester. This picturesque 4-acre memorial is comprised of three distinct sections, called "Places." Amongst these three sections you will also find a pond and fountain, walking paths, beautiful landscaping and inviting park benches. This truly is a place that provides a dignified, quiet, natural location for both reflection and learning.

The Vietnam Veterans' Memorial "Places" consist of the PLACE OF FLAGS, PLACE OF WORDS and PLACE OF NAMES:

  • The PLACE OF FLAGS is a beautifully landscaped, circular monument consisting of three flags: an American Flag, the State Flag of Massachusetts and a POW/MIA Flag.
  • The PLACE OF WORDS displays text etched in granite, taken directly from hand-written letters home by some of the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines who died while serving in Vietnam.
  • The PLACE OF NAMES lists all of the names of Massachusetts residents who died in combat or as a result of wounds received while in action in Vietnam, or are still MIA.
