Atlanta and Fulton County lost 240 known Souls in the Vietnam War.
Their names are memorialized in the Georgia State Memorial Park across from the State Capital Building at 2 MLK Jr. Drive in downtown Atlanta, and on the National Vietnam War Memorial Wall in Washington DC, but nowhere in the City of Atlanta is there a Memorial with the Atlanta City Seal for these highest status patriots. On January 22, 2019, thanks to the leadership of Michael J. Bond and the full support of the Atlanta
Commission on Veterans Affairs, the Atlanta City Council adopted a Resolution, partnering with the 1118th
Chapter of Vietnam Veterans of America to establish a "Sons of Atlanta Vietnam War Monument and Memorial Experience" honoring those citizens from this City. On June 5, 2019, the Fulton County Commission, led by Commissioner Marvin Arrington Jr., adopted a Proclamation also endorsing and supporting this Project. Despite the great history of Atlanta, there is no monument specifically honoring them. We will install a permanent memorial to honor those Atlantans and Fulton County heroes who were Killed-In-Action in the Vietnam War, the Sons of Atlanta.
