James Charles McConville was born in Quincy and is an active U.S. Army general who is the 40th chief of staff of the Army.

“In the theme of the bridge and the park, we found it appropriate to honor two of the more modern day generals,” Mayor Thomas Koch said. “It kind of has a nice touch to it. Both of them were sons of veterans and came from pretty amazing local families.”

The $35.6 million Generals Bridge project will ultimately honor seven generals from Quincy. A dedication is planned for Sept. 11.
