The MBTA's Gold Star Memorial Coach is inscribed with the name of every Massachusetts soldier, sailor, Marine, Guardsman or airman who has died during Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The Gold Star Memorial Coach of the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority is scheduled to make a rare appearance at Western Gateway Heritage State Park on Wednesday morning.
The coach will be at Building 4 at the State Street park for viewing between 9 and 9:45 a.m.
The coach was unveiled at Boston's South Station last May as a rolling memorial containing the names of the more than 130 Massachusetts members of the armed forces who have lost their lives in Iraq or Afghanistan.
That's what makes Wednesday's visit to Western Massachusetts so unique.
In an invitation to Gold Star families and veterans organizations to view the train, Fallon notes, "This is one of the rare occasions and most likely the only time the car will be able to make it out to the western part of the state."
