Veterans Wall of Honor | Henry County, Georgia
Honoring All Veterans

Veterans Wall of Honor, McDonough, Georgia

The Veterans Wall of Honor is a unique national monument that honors all veterans, living and deceased, for their service and sacrifices to secure our freedom. Dedicated on Veterans Day 2008, it sits on a 2 ½ acre hilltop site in the historic Heritage Park in McDonough, Georgia. Old Glory, the 50 state flags and the emblems of all the military branches provide a grand backdrop for the focal point, a 75-foot long granite wall laser-engraved with depictions of various scenes of battle and service by our military, as well as famous quotes by our nation's leaders and excerpts from inspirational poems.

Sitting opposite the wall is an MIA/POW monument. With a graceful, skyward arc, a laser-engraved picture of an eagle taking flight, and the empty boots of a makeshift grave of a fallen comrade, it quotes the words of President Ronald Reagan, "America keeps a vigil for those who have not yet returned."

Together, the two monuments provide a powerful reminder of the United States' rich military history and a quiet place to reflect on the soldiers who fought for our country and the courage and honor they exemplified.

Adjacent to the Veterans Wall of Honor is the Historical Military Museum, dedicated to all veterans and their families. A great place to learn more about our veterans, their equipment and uniforms, and learn more about the way of life experienced by members of all the military services.
