Old Glory

Artist Kelly Brockway puts the finishing touches on a mural painting of Old Glory in a hallway of The True Citizen building. The painting graces the entrance to the Veterans Hall of Honor which will be dedicated and open to the public on Thursday, November 12. Conceived and designed by Martha Chalker, the hall includes an extensive number of photographs of Burke County's veterans dating as far back as the Civil War. Mike Roby, Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Veterans Service, will be the keynote speaker at the event and will also present Certificates of Honor to local veterans of the Vietnam War. U.S. Congressman Rick Allen will present U.S. Department of Defense pins to those veterans.
