The Memorial Wall: A Tribute to Our Heroes

Every day CIA employees risk their lives to keep the nation safe. Some make the ultimate sacrifice and give their lives for the mission. On the smooth, white marble walls of the CIA Original Headquarters Building lobby a field of stars serves as a somber, silent memorial for fallen CIA officers.

Learn more about the Agency’s tributes to its heroes in the CIA’s new Memorial Wall publication. The Office of Public Affairs produces publications like Memorial Wall to inform the public about the Agency and its mission.

The Memorial Wall publication explores the history of the Memorial Wall, the Book of Honor, and the annual Memorial Service. Readers will learn about who receives a star and about the master stone carver who designed the memorial and the current stone carver who continues the work. In this publication, readers experience how the Agency honors those officers who have given their lives to defend our nation.

A printable version of the Memorial Wall publication is available on the website so readers can share it with friends and family.
