Swansea's Veterans Memorial Green is in the construction stage and our veterans are very excited about the project. If you wish to purchase a lasered brick to honor a veteran living or deceased call Don at the American legion post 303. His cell phone number is (774) 488 4288. The bricks are $50.00 and can contain 3 lines lasered to honor a veteran for their service to our country. The Veteran being honored does not have to be a Swansea resident. It is amazing how the community has responded to this project. On behalf of our veterans we ask your support in this most worthy project. Thank You!
