FRAMINGHAM, Mass. (AP) - A memorial dedicated to service members from communities west of Boston who died during the Vietnam War is being unveiled this weekend.

The ceremony is scheduled for Sunday in front of the headquarters of the MetroWest Regional Transit Authority in Framingham.

The memorial features a 9-foot tall, bronze sculpture of a Vietnam-era American soldier as well as granite blocks bearing the names of 61 fallen veterans from 14 area communities.

Those communities are Ashland, Dover, Framingham, Holliston, Hopkinton, Hudson, Marlborough, Milford, Natick, Sherborn, Southborough, Sudbury, Wellesley, and Weston.

The public as well as surviving family members of the veterans are invited to attend.

To be eligible for the Framingham memorial, veterans’ names must be on the Vietnam Memorial in Washington.
