Fort Worth is not the only city to take a shot at a mural on the wall of its city hall.
The city of Atlanta has been in the works for a while, with the murals of the city’s city hall, the Atlanta Braves, and Georgia’s Capitol building already in place.
But this one in downtown Fort Worth was just announced.
The murals have been in place since September, and they are expected to be unveiled in a few weeks time.
“We wanted to honor the legacy of the people of Fort Hood, Texas and the men and women who served and died there,” Fort Worth Mayor Pete Buttigieg said.
“These are the people who were the heroes, the heroes of the war, the soldiers that fought and died here, and this is what we are doing with this mural.”
It is a tribute to the men, women and children who lost their lives during the conflict.
“Our city and state are in mourning after the devastating and devastating war, and our city has a proud history of welcoming, encouraging and supporting all Americans,” Buttigeg said.
While Fort Worth might have a history of showing support for veterans, it is also the first city to have a mural depicting a Fort Hood service member.
