Thank You For Your Interest In The Wall Of Heroes.
The Gloucester County Board of Freeholders has commissioned The Wall of Heroes as part of the Justice Complex expansion project. The Wall of Heroes will honor the men and women who were killed in action or missing in action while serving in the US Military protecting our freedoms and rights.
If you know of any Gloucester County veterans from your community who never made it home, please help us to include them in the Wall of Heroes. On this webpage, you will find the eligibility guidelines, an application and photo examples. The application is the first step to being included on the Wall.
Because The Wall of Heroes will feature an artistic rendering of those who made the ultimate sacrifice, photographs are of particular importance. If there is no photograph that can be found of the person to be honored, only the name and other key information of the military personnel will be framed on the wall.
The Wall of Heroes will consist of framed 5x8 translucent artistic renderings portraying reasonable likenesses of the persons whom we are honoring. The Wall will represent all branches of the military and they will be arranged by era (i.e. American Revolution, Civil War, Spanish American War, WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Persian Gulf, Iraq, and Afghanistan).
How you can get involved
There are at least 350 Gloucester County residents who never made it home. The Wall of Heroes will feature an artistic rendering of those who made the ultimate sacrifice so photographs are of particular importance. With your help you can bring to life those who lost theirs by providing photographs of eligible men and women. Our eligibility guidelines, application and Hero Lists can be found below or obtained through our Gloucester County Office of Veterans Affairs at 401-7660.
Thank you in advance for your assistance with this important project honoring those who made the supreme sacrifice for our country.
