Veterans Day is Friday, Nov. 11. Georgia Tech and the Atlanta community will host various events in observance of the holiday.
The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) will host an event for invited guests on Thursday, Nov. 10, at 11 a.m. highlighting plans for a tribute project that will be built on campus.
The Veterans Walk of Honor, located outside the VRC, will honor all Georgia Tech alumni, students, and staff who have served in the U.S. armed forces. The walkway leading to the VRC will feature granite inlays and mounted wall plaques recognizing the six branches of the military. Each inlay will include a portion of Morse code representing the branch’s slogan, encouraging discovery and reflection. Adjacent elevated signage will display the core values of military service: honor, courage, commitment, respect, duty, valor, service, and integrity. An upper plaza reflection area will feature an American flag and overlook Griffin Track and McCamish Pavilion, with the city skyline in the distance.
