Victory Park War Dead Monument

East Point
Fulton County
Georgia  USA
Postal Code: 30344

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Victory Park was establish to memorialize the war dead from East Point, Ga. (in cenotaph) that fought in World War I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam and the Persian Gulf War. All branches of service are represented. The park features an eternal flame (now electric), and a vintage WW II Howitzer anti aircraft gun. In addition to the plaques that bear the names of the towns fallen, other plaques are present. The plaques detail committee chairs, VFW involvement, a brief history of the city and a plaque made from a steel plate from the hull of the decommissioned S.S. East Point Victory Ship. One plaque and the large rock to which it is affixed, was never meant for placement in the Park but was relocated from Hillcrest Cemetery where it was a memorial for those veterans buried there. Due to overgrown conditions, lack of care and the sale of the small area of land it sat on, it was relocated to Victory Park.

Victory Park is located between Church St. and McGee Way and directly behind the East Point City Hall complex.
