Join @NA_Box_Vets at the @MiddlesexGWOT Veteran’s Monument Dedication Ceremony, June 8th at 10AM!

Middlesex G.W.O.T. Veteran’s Monument Dedication Ceremony

June 8th ~ 10AM
 
Middlesex GWOT
1 Hollis Street
Pepperall, MA 01463
All Military, Fire and Police are encouraged to wear your uniforms and participate in our procession kicking off the dedication.
(Please contact middlesexgwot@gmail.com for details)
 
About Middlesex GWOT: The Middlesex GWOT Monument Committee is dedicated to the construction and preservation of a public monument honoring those veterans who served in the Global War on Terror (GWOT) post 911, including Operation Enduring Freedom, Operation Iraq Freedom, New Dawn, Inherent Resolve and Freedom Sentinel.

We honor all veterans who have served in the United States Military.

About the Monument Design:  This monument was created by designer Lee Rich, project manager at Drumey Rosanne Anderson Architects of Waltham, MA. The granite monument’s carefully chosen symbols are from the artist’s conversations with GWOT veterans’ and inspired by their stories.

The design for the monument is a 5 point star, with a circular walkway around it. Each point of the star represents a branch of the service: Army, Navy, Marines, Air force and Coast Guard. At the tip of each point the emblem of each specific branch will be displayed embedded into the stone.

In the center of the star is a pentagon with a granite slab that will rise 7 feet. On each side of this granite wall there will be a relief of Iraq and Afghanistan and a life-size, cut out silhouette of a soldier walking away from the countries toward the American flag. Viewed from either side the soldier is walking away from each of those counties, headed for home.   In the middle of the pentagon are combat boot prints in concrete the color of desert sand.  The footsteps will journey toward the American flag traveling away from the country to symbolize the journey home.  Not all of the footprints will extend all the way across the pentagon to represent those solders who did not return home.  The color of the monument will be sand, as these veterans said “Sand was everywhere”.  Read more…
