I worked at Mc Gann Bronze Foundry in Somerville in the early 60's as a Pattern Setter.
These bookends were made there
I Put letters of names and dates & service on molds for bronze grave markers.
Started getting orders for our Service men who were killed in Viet-Nam!!!
Being a dumb 16 year old back then, I said where the Hell is Vietnam I found out 2 years later
when I was drafted and sent there 66-67. I was lucky they sent me and others to build supply dumps.
When I left it was Westmorelands headquarters.
They were HEROES ALL!!!!
