The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall
Our community is so proud and honored to be a host to The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall ®
"The Wall is a 3/5 scale of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC, it stands six feet tall at the center and covers almost 300 feet from end to end.
This Traveling Memorial stands as a reminder of the great sacrifices made during the Vietnam War. It was made for the purpose of helping heal and rekindle friendships and to allow people the opportunity to visit loved ones in their home town who otherwise may not be able to make the trip to Washington." - travelingwall.us website information.
