These men are memorialized by gold-toned portraits inside the high school, commissioned by Mayor James Michael Curley and the City of Boston. They were first dedicated in 1932 at South Boston High School (now named Excel High School), where they still exist today and can be viewed at the ceremony.

World War One re-enactors and a WWI tank will be on site from 10 a.m.-10:55 a.m. The formal program begins at 11:00 a.m. inside the Auditorium and will include music, speakers, and a Roll Call of the Fallen.
