**This seven-foot-tall granite obelisk monument was dedicated June 9, 1984, as the Vietnam Memorial. Displayed on the front face is an effigy of a combat soldier giving honor to a fallen comrade and with an American flag behind him. The name of five Danvers young men are included with inscribed words reading: “He’s my brother,” and “They did not ask why.” The monument includes on its other faces the words “World War One,” “World War Two,” and “Korea.”
