1. Viet Nam War Memorial
Inscription. "A war that produced no famous victories, no national heroes, and no stirring patriotic songs." America vainly attempted to support a weak government in its civil fight against Communism. We remember Boston's military men who fought bravely and endured the harsh consequences of war.

In memoriam Cpl. David H. Finger
