The city of Medford plans to add the names of veterans who were in the armed forces during recent wars and conflicts to its Honor Roll Park memorial on Winthrop Street, according to an announcement from Mayor Michael McGlynn.

The city has compiled a list of names of veterans who served during operations Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, but is asking the public's help in reviewing it in order to ensure all names are spelled correctly and no names are missing, McGlynn said in a statement.

View the list of Desert Storm vets here and Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom vets here.

The names will be included on a bronze plaque, which will be added to the war memorial at Honor Roll Park, located near the entrance to Medford High School on Winthrop Street. Any name corrections or additions must be submitted to the city's Veterans Services office by June 15. Once the plaque is made, names will not be able to be corrected.

A dedication ceremony is expected to be held in the fall.
