Massachusetts Fallen Heroes Announce September 10t" Groundbreaking for Permanent Public Memorial in South Boston Bay State Veteran and Survivor Non-Profit Set to Break Ground on Public Memorial Featuring 50-Foot Obelisk Structure, Interactive Technology, Reflecting Pools, Water Fountains and Extensive Recreational Green Space to Honor Massachusetts Fallen Heroes Massachusetts Fallen Heroes is proud to announce ground-break- ing on September 10 th, 2014 for a first-of-its-kind permanent public memorial to honor the Common- wealth's brave men and women who have lost their lives in ser- vice while fighting the War on Terror since September I1, 2001. The 50-foot memorial will be cen- trally located on Seaport Square Park in South Boston where patrons will have the opportuntty to reflect on the sacrifices Massachusetts fallen heroes have made for this country while enjoying the multitude of recreational activities to be offered at the park. "After years of planning a permanent public tribute to honor our Massachusetts heroes who have made the ultimate sacri- fice for our country, it is a great honor to announce its groundbreaking for the day prior to the 13 th' anniversary of Septem- ber 11, 2001," said Executive Director Dan Magoon. "In our ongoing fight to aid local veterans and their families, we aim to set the standard here in Massachusetts for how our lost loved ones and veterans should be forever honored and we hope this memorial inspires similar tribute throughout the country." The permanent public memorial will be constructed on Seaport Square Park, a 1-acre park comprising a portion of the forthcoming 23-acre Seaport Square Development in South Boston. The Mass Fallen Heroes memorial groundbreaking will coincide with the organization's cus- tomized license plate initiative, which is currently being offered to the public at www. Mass Fallen Heroes teamed with Seaport Square Developer John Hynes and Boston Global Investors, Hacin + Associates, designer James Carpenter and Reed Hilderbrand {Landscape Architect) to con- ceptualize the 50-foot obelisk. Day and night, the five-sided translucent structure will present an engaging sense of light as the sun is captured and reflected across Seaport Green and will transition to an internally lit beacon during the evening hours. The memorial will also feature an indoor interactive room housing artifacts and memorabilia that veterans of post 9/11 conflicts brought home from battle.
