‘Heroes Among Us’ to honor Cold War veterans

The Andover Veterans Office has written six books documenting the stories of living Andover veterans who served during World War II and Korea. Michael Burke, the town’s director of veterans services, says the book project has captured true local history and afforded the community the opportunity to formally recognize and thank its veterans during the town’s annual Veterans Day ceremonies.

Cold War veterans who served between 1948 and 1989 will be the focus of the next book. Burke says many service people are considered Cold War veterans, whether they served during Korea or Vietnam, with all contributing to the nation’s success during the era.

Anyone who is a Cold War veteran or knows of any living Andover Cold War veterans is encouraged to contact the Andover Veterans Office at 978-623-8218.
