Visit the New DEA Wall of Honor
The Wall of Honor is a central, yet serene, place of reflection located in the DEA Museum's lobby. Since 1995, the agency has prominently displayed portraits of the men and women of DEA and its predecessor agencies who lost their lives while on duty. DEA continues to honor their sacrifices with a redesigned space featuring newly commissioned portraits, a dignified brass display area, respectful 24-hour illumination, and an interactive kiosk that shares the stories of each hero.
