John's name has recently been added to the list of veterans who died later from wounds or illnesses resulting from their service.  John will be officially honored at the 2022 induction ceremony to be held at the Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. on June 18, where his name will be read aloud.  John's name will also be included when the mobile "Wall That Heals" visits Bedford (9/22-9/25) and Methuen (9/29-10/2) later this year.  Read more about John at:

This represents the culmination of efforts by Joe Driscoll, Tom Leary, and Rich Lyon, with input and support from John's family, Ann Loven, Larry Gottsman, and many other classmates, along with the sole surviving member of John's Marine platoon, to obtain for John the long-overdue recognition he deserves for his service and sacrifice.  Added Feb '22

If you went to Broadmeadow, then you may want to look at newly updated class photos from Anne Henderson.  In any case, do you recognize these 4th graders?!
