Visit around Veterans Day to view the Veteran’s Wall of Honor, a 75-foot long granite wall engraved with depictions of battle scenes. Drop by the Veteran’s Historical Museum to view vehicles, uniforms and artifacts from America’s wars.
Newtown Park: The Veterans Memorial Walk stands as a symbol of remembrance and respect for the men and women in the U.S. Armed Services. The five-acre memorial features monuments paying homage to each conflict starting with WWI, along with monuments for Purple Heart Recipients, POW/MIAs and Women in Service. The Wall That Heals, a 250-foot replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, was added in 2020.
American Legion Post 201: The Walk of Memories honors those who have bravely served the country with nearly 8,000 bricks inscribed with the names of Georgians who have served. Monuments along the walkway spotlight WWII, Korea and Vietnam Wars. You’ll also see a WWII M60 tank, a Vietnam-era helicopter and a twin gun mount on display.
Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center: Located on the grounds of this center, the Fallen Heroes Memorial pays tribute to Gwinnett residents who have died in the line of duty. The memorial honors about 700 individuals on black granite markers, and the central pedestal features a Gwinnett firefighter’s bronze sculpture of an eagle carrying a rose.
Brooke Street Park: Set behind Alpharetta City Hall, visit Brooke Street Park to view the Alpharetta Veterans Memorial. The centerpiece is a 7-foot tall bronze statue featuring two soldiers in full combat gear and is titled “The Defenders.” The memorial is a tribute to all who have served to protect America.
