The Town of Wakefield welcomes home its active duty military personnel by displaying their name outside of the Americal Civic Center for all to see as they travel down Main Street. Unique to Wakefield, the Welcome Home Sign is available for any veteran from the town to ensure all veterans from every era receive the welcome home they deserve.
Family, friends and organizations are encouraged to nominate deserving veterans. While there is no formal cost for this service, nominators are asked to make a suggested donation of $25 to the Wakefield Veterans Relief Fund in order to help the town assist its needy veterans.
To nominate a soldier, sailor, marine or airman, please contact
Wakefield Veteran Services at 781-246-6377.
