Memorial to Afghanistan and Iraq Coming to Holliston
A moving memorial which honors veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan is coming to Holliston this weekend.
A traveling memorial to honor soldiers killed in the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan will visit Holliston from June 9 to June 15.
Housed at the Senior Center, opening ceremonies for the memorial will start at 3 p.m. on Saturday with speeches from area veterans, according to the Holliston Reporter.
"The memorial is sponsored in part by the Boston Firefighters Union. The appearance of the memorial is due in part to the efforts of the office of State Representative Carolyn Dykema and local veteran Steve Bradford who is a member of the local American Legion and the MetroWest Veteran's Consortium," the article says.
The American Legion Post 47 will host host a reception following the memorial's opening ceremones.
