Hermano Vieira Square
Hermano Vieira Square, is named for Hermano “Eddie” Perry (Perreira) Vieira, a native of New Bedford, a local soccer player, who served in the Tank Corps in WWII, and who earned a Purple Heart for his service and who later died as a result of his wounds. Senator John F. Kennedy visited this site to honor Private Eddie Vieira. (Can add photo of site & Senator JFK visit as covered by the newspapers.) Wickedcoolturtles (talk) 23:48, 18 July 2019 (UTC)

- I'd oppose that per WP:NOTMEMORIAL. 10s (if not hundreds) of thousands fighting men and women have earned the Purple Heart over the years. He certainly wouldn't be notable. He's certainly not the only person, even from this community, that died as a result of an injury sustained in a war. That information is not significant enough for inclusion and without reliable published secondary sources to back up everything said, I will continue to object. Even with sources the most I'd consider is a parenthetical mention in a referenced bit about the park, mentioning that it was named after a WWII vet, and only with reliable secondary sources. I'd oppose any inclusion of a photo of any non notable individual. John from Idegon (talk) 00:55, 19 July 2019 (UTC)
