Published the first Friday of each month by the SilverStringers of Melrose, Massachusetts -- June 7, 2013

The veterans of some dozen wars, scuffles and deadly misunderstandings between nations, stood on stage at the Melrose Veterans Memorial school on Friday, May 24, to be recognized by their community. The numbers -- some eighty vets took part including several uniformed Melrose men from the 182nd National Guard -- are only a small representation of the soldiers from Melrose who have fought and subsequently passed. The production was done by a group of eighth graders, led by their principal, Thomas Brow.

Publisher for this issue is Louise Sutton Fennell
