Vietnam Memorial Moving Wall

Standard

Back in the spring, the Vietnam Memorial Moving Wall came to one of our local towns. It is a smaller, to scale version of the Memorial Wall in Washington, DC. I’ve seen the replica wall before and it is still surprising at how moving and emotional it can be to visit.

If you have the opportunity to see it in your own area, take it. It is paid for through donations, so you can pay what you can afford and take as muich time as you need for your visit.

There is an area where you can look up family members or friends who may be engraved on the wall, and you can have the opportunity to take a pencil engraving.

There is the continual hum of all of the names being read while you visit.
