Veterans Tribute Wall

Veterans Tribute Wall located in the northwest corridor leading into the Domestic Terminals Atrium

Officially unveiled by former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, the U.S. Military Service Wall of Honor is a permanent tribute to the armed services. The Department of Aviation worked with the Atlanta Vietnam Veterans Business Association, Korean War Veterans Association, Military Order of the Purple Heart, Montford Point Marine Association, Tuskegee Airmen, United Service Organizations Inc. and the Veterans of Foreign Wars to realize the exhibit. The Wall of Honor, which measures some 25 feet by 11 feet, features a display of artifacts universal to the military experience. Among the items, encased in bronze and glass, are an American flag from 1889, an Army bugle from 1925 and a flight jacket from 1944. The display also includes digital monitors with a slide show of images of service men and women from all age ranges and racial backgrounds. As a living tribute photos of military servicemen and women can be submitted to for display.
