Wall of Honor & Tree of Life
The City of American Canyon honors our active military personnel with a Wall of Honor. The Wall of Honor is located adjacent to the City Council Chambers at City Hall and displays pictures and information about American Canyon residents, their family or loved ones currently serving in the Armed Forces. 

The Tree of Life was designed to remember the lives of American Canyon's deceased veterans. The name, service branch, and dates of service are imprinted on brass leaves and affixed to the "Tree of Life" on the wall outside of the City Council Chambers at City Hall. 

If you have questions or would like more information about the Wall of Honor or the Tree of Life, contact Suellen Johnston at (707) 647-5337 or by email.
