Located on the grounds of the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center in Lawrenceville, with a front entrance on the GJAC Campus and rear walking trail access from Luckie Street and Constitution Boulevard, The Gwinnett Fallen Heroes Memorial pays tribute to all Gwinnett residents who died in the line of duty in either military or public safety service.
From native Americans conflicts to present campaigns, the memorial honors roughly 700 individuals, organized by categories of service. Their names, in random order and without rank, are carved on 13 black granite markers that are nine feet tall. A central pedestal features a Gwinnett firefighter's bronze sculpture of an eagle carrying a rose. Aligned with the sidewalk from the Memorial through the parking area to the entrance of GJAC is a grand monument to all branches of the armed forces. Free Admission
