Vietnam Memorial Traveling Wall

Thursday, September 12, 2019 to Sunday, September 15, 2019

"The Moving Wall" is the half-size replica of the Washington, DC Vietnam Veterans Memorial and has been touring the country for more than twenty years. When John Devitt attended the 1982 dedication in Washington, he felt the positive power of "The Wall." He vowed to share that experience with those who did not have the opportunity to go to Washington. 

John Devitt, Norris Shears, Gerry Haver, and other Vietnam veteran volunteers built The Moving Wall. It went on display for the first time in Tyler, Texas in October of 1984. Two structures of The Moving Wall now travel the USA from April through November, spending about a week at each site. 

If you have never been to Washington, D.C. to see the Vietnam Wall, this would be an opportunity for you to visit and pay your respects to those you may have served with, to see your loved one's name, and perhaps, start the healing process. There will be volunteers to assist with finding a name, and answer questions.
