obeliskMassachusetts Fallen Heroes broke ground on a permanent public tribute in the fall of 2014 to honor the Commonwealth’s brave servicemen and women who died while in service to this grateful nation.

The Memorial is a powerful and refined beacon of light a five-sided diaphanous column signifying the branches of the Service, looming above the trees in the park and reaching for the sky. During the day, the tower continuously reflects and refracts the waterfront’s changing light. At night, its internal illumination is visible from vantage points around Downtown Boston and the Harbor. The memorial is a place where Gold Star Families, as well as the general public from all over the world, can come together to reflect and honor our brave heroes.

Upon teaming up with Seaport Square developer John Hynes, Hacin + Associates, Boston Global Investors, WS Development and designer James Carpenter and Reed Hilderbrand (Landscape Architect), the 50-foot obelisk was unveiled and dedicated on May 27th , 2016. The Memorial stands tall in Boston’s Seaport Park and serves as a public space for reflection and remembrance of those who gave their lives fighting for our freedom in the Global War on Terrorism since September 11th, 2001.
