The memorial, near the intersection of Lake and Cross streets, features four black granite panels, with the center two panels listing the names of the state’s Vietnam heroes.
The center panels also bear a dedication reading, “All gave some, some gave all.”
The memorial’s base bears bronze service emblems from the various military branches.
The middle school project inspired local efforts to build a permanent memorial to the war heroes, and the town of Coventry agreed to provide land on the Memorial Green.
Students at Coventry High School are collecting photographs of the state’s Vietnam heroes as part of the “Call for Photos” campaign being coordinated by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund.
