MEMORIAL OF GEORGIA'S FALLEN IN WAR ON TERROR COMES TO GJAC NOV. 6-9
(Lawrenceville, Ga., Nov. 6, 2017) – Photos of Georgia’s military heroes who were killed in post 9/11 wars will be on display at the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center from Nov. 6 to Nov. 9 as part of the “Remembering Our Fallen – Georgia Memorial.”
Sponsored by Military Veterans of Georgia, the traveling exhibit incorporates military and personal photos of servicemen and women from Georgia killed in the fight against terrorism. Remembering Our Fallen is a national program of photographic war memorials to ensure that those killed in defense of our nation are not forgotten. The Georgia display honors more than 200 officers and enlisted personnel.
Fallen veterans include those on active duty stateside or overseas, who died from attacks, training accidents, job-related injuries or who served in combat since Sept. 11 and later succumbed to Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Military Veterans of Georgia supports veterans’ assistance programs such as a Veterans Resource Center, the Operation Atlas PTSD Dogs program, Yoga Warriors and offers training and classes to first responders and volunteers on how to deal with a veteran in crisis.
The display is free. The Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center is located at 75 Langley Drive, Lawrenceville.
