The Honor Wall will feature the first and last names of Lee County, Texas veterans.
Each section will be constructed to fit 12 Georgia Grey Granite tiles measuring 20 x 20 x 2 thick, engraved with names for an approximate total of 6,000 names. Names will be engraved in random order. Space is being left available for future additions. It is our mission to make sure that the sacrifices of our Heroes will not be forgotten for generations to come.
