Veterans Memorial in Athens

ATHENS, Ala. (WAFF) - Athens is getting a new look!

Five students from Athens State University are painting a mural in the city’s downtown to honor our nation’s veterans.

The artwork will feature three soldiers standing in front of the American Flag, and the flag itself will be a mosaic of 200 soldiers who served from Limestone County.

The mural will be on the walls of the Alabama Veteran’s Museum.
