Boynton Beach disbanding veterans board, but work, events won’t stop


By Alexandra Seltzer

The Boynton Beach veterans group existed long before becoming a city entity 10 years ago, and it will continue after the commissioners will likely vote in May to dissolve the board.
Group members say they aren’t upset over the decision because it achieved its primary goal: To create a park that celebrates and memorializes veterans.
With the board’s planning and chair Tom Kaiser’s leadership, the park on Federal Highway has 24 memorial monuments and 12 benches, including one for Boynton Beach soldier Michael Metcalf, who was killed in Afghanistan four years ago at 22.

“They have achieved their goals. They have built a beautiful park. They have significantly improved veterans affairs and issues with the city of Boynton Beach and its veterans. We should all be proud,” said Jeff Livergood, the city’s director of public works and also the liaison to the board.
The memorial ceremonies at the park will still be held and Livergood will still work with the veterans. And the men in the group will still continue their work — they’ll just be stationed at the local Veterans of Foreign Wars chapter where they started.
