The monument is to be located on the Peachtree Corners Town Green and occupy 3,000 square feet and consist of the following;

  • A central pillar topped with a sculpture of an eagle atop the globe to represent the presence of the US Armed Forces across the world

  • Five sculptures to represent each of the Armed Forces

  • A sculpture to honor the Veterans of the National Guard, Federal Reserves, and Merchant Marines

  • An interactive component to identify and recognize the service of the Veterans of Peachtree Corners

  • The American, Georgia, and City flags, located behind the central pillar

  • Stone benches for visitors to sit while contemplating the sacrifices and contributions of our veterans

  • Engraved outer wall caps with the dates of America’s significant wars and other military operations

  • Engraved pavers donated to honor or memorialize veterans of the families and friends of Peachtree Corners

Renowned sculptor, Chad Fisher of Fisher Sculptures, is donating the seven sculptures.
