Peachtree Corners Veterans Monument

 

Birth of the PCVMA

In March 2015, Mayor Mike Mason called together a group of residents to discuss the possibility of building a Veterans Monument to be located in the city. The vision was to build a monument to honor all military veterans, past, present and future, for their service to the United States of America and its citizens.

The group agreed to form a non-profit organization to raise money for a monument. Thus the Peachtree Corners Veterans Monument Association (PCVMA) was born. The Association is recognized by the IRS as a 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization.

The Monument

Unveiled and dedicated June 15, 2019, it is located on the city’s new Town Center in a prominent place on the Town Green. The Monument has been designed to be a serene and dignified place where individuals may come and reflect – and where veterans, schools and civic organizations may hold ceremonies and educational opportunities. 

The Monument consists of a 2,500 square-foot plaza and seven sculptures, a central pillar topped with an eagle atop the globe to represent the presence of the U.S. Armed forces across the world, and six sculptures representing each of the Armed Forces and the Federal Military Reserve components.

Benches are built into the outer wall and the granite wall tops are engraved with America’s wars and significant military operations. Three flagpoles flying the American, Georgia and City flags serve as a backdrop for the Veterans Monument.

The App

A smartphone app will provide the interactive component that describes the monument with links to information about the veterans of Peachtree Corners along with a brick locator. In addition, interactive terminals will be tablets that also access the app.

Our Veterans

All veterans or family members of veterans living in Peachtree Corners are invited to add their names to the PCVM roster of veterans to be included on the Monument.
