CARL RUSSO PHOTOS: Haverhill’s Vietnam Memorial Commission held the formal dedication of the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial at Millbrook Park on Saturday, Sept. 11.

The Commission members chose this day to honor Vietnam veterans and those who died in the war, to recognize the 13 members of the military who were killed in Afghanistan recently, and to remember those who perished in the 911 terrorist attacks.

 Linda Gambino Baxter of Haverhill, whose brother died in the war, had the honor of reading the names of the fallen Haverhill veterans during the ceremony.

The Missing Man and Falling Comrade Table was also set up as a semi-official place of honor in memory of fallen, missing in action or prisoner of war military service members.
