Gwinnett's Fallen Heroes Memorial is located at 75 Langely Drive Lawrenceville, Georgia and was dedicated on Memorial Day 2003 and honors Gwinnett County Military, Law Enforcement,and Firefighters who have died in the line of duty.
From Native Americans "who were the first to love this land" to the most recent casualties, 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 and weigh almost four tons each. A central pedestal holds Vic McCallum bronze sculpture of an eagle carrying the "Remembrance" rose.
