The Stars on the Wall
The CIA Memorial Wall is one of the first things visitors see when entering the Original Headquarters Building lobby. The wall – located on the lobby’s north wall – stands as a silent memorial to those CIA employees “who gave their lives in the service of their country.” Currently, there are 102 stars carved into the marble of the CIA Memorial Wall.
The"Book of Honor" lists the names of 62 employees who died while serving their country. The names of the remaining 40 employees must remain secret, even in death; each of these officers is remembered in the book by a star.
