New sculptures in Everett Square
Dog Tags"Dorchester has sent so many of its sons and daughters to war," Baring-Gould said. "I wanted to honor people who gave their lives to war, and people who came back and used that experience to work in their community."
Every dog tag on the sculpture bears the name of a real Dorchester veteran, dating back to Private Prince Darby, an African-American soldier who served in the American Revolution. One of the quotes on the sculpture, "For the freedom of others, his life was cut short," comes from the mother of Sgt. Daniel Londono, who grew up in Everett Square and was killed in action in Iraq in 2004.
