Anyone driving through downtown Woburn has seen the barricades. The city's veterans memorial is undergoing an extreme facelift thanks to John Flaherty's donation earlier this year.
John Flaherty and his wife, Kathy, visited Barre, VT last week where many of the tablets for the new memorial are being built.
According to the city's Veterans Services office, each of the 26 tablets will have the local wartime veterans' names on it, as well as an etched picture depicting the war period.
The published photos are not the complete project, said Jennifer Murray from the Veterans Services office.
The entire project is expected to be complete on the Common in time for a Veterans Day dedication on Nov. 11.
