An Unforgettable Experience Honoring Those Who Will Never Be Forgotten.
The only one of its kind in Georgia, this memorial represents conflicts from the Indian War to WWI to Iraq and Afghanistan. Wander the Walk of Memories to find bricks representing those killed in action,those who died of wounds, prisoners of war, sons of the Legion, as well as friends and family. Monuments along the walkway spotlight several conflicts, including WWII, Korea and Vietnam.
A tank, helicopter, Navy gun, and, an Air Force T-33 Trainer, are part of the exhibit. The M60 tank, used in Europe during the Cold War in the 60's thru the 80's in the Fulda Gap, weighs 93,000 pounds. The UH-1 Huey helicopter was flown during the 1968 Tet Offensive in the Republic of Vietnam and its pilot awarded the Medal of Honor. A nearby plaque tells the story of its mission. Seventeen Medal of Honor recipients are honored in this area. The 15,000 pound, 40mm Mark 1 twin gun mount on display was removed from the USS POLK COUNTY (LST 1084).
