The Massachusetts Office of Travel & Tourism has issued a guide to select war memorials throughout the Commonwealth in advance of this year’s Memorial Day Weekend.
Massachusetts residents have an illustrious history of military service, dating back to the Revolutionary War and continuing through today. MOTT’s war memorial brochure features a selection of memorials, ranging from the U.S.S. Constitution in Charlestown, Battleship Cove in Fall River and the Civil War Soldiers and Sailors Monuments on Boston Common, to the World War II Museum in Natick, World War II Auditorium in Worcester, the War Memorial Tower at Mt. Greylock and the Fallen Heroes Memorial in Boston’s Seaport District.
Here is a list of all of the war memorials in Massachusetts.
MOTT also provides a Memorial Day round-up of parades and commemorations, including free events at museums and attractions for veterans.
You can find more information about various veterans programs in Massachusetts by visiting the Department of Veterans Services.
