The city's new war-time veterans monument is being built downtown this week. The memorial's panels were constructed earlier in Vermont and were brought to Woburn Tuesday.
The memorial will stand on the Common area across from where the old memorial once stood. The new memorial will have the names of all war-time veterans from all wars.
Photos above include John Flaherty visiting the construction site, as well as some of the memorial panels.
The Friends of Woburn Veterans' Committee is planning a large dedication of the memorial on Nov. 11. In addition to the dedication during the city's Veterans' Day event, the committee will also hold a celebratory picnic outside City Hall.
