Memorial Mission


The Moving Wall Vietnam Memorial

Altamont, New York - 26 Apr 2018


ABOUT THE MISSION:

The Moving Wall will be on display in Altamont, NY from April 26 to April 30, 2018. The Moving Wall is the half-size replica of the Washington, DC Vietnam Veterans Memorial and has been touring the country for thirty plus years.

Vietnam veteran volunteers built The Moving Wall, and 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. The Moving Wall is one of four such traveling memorials that tour the country, honoring those 58,318 brave soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines who lost their lives in service to their country during the Vietnam War.

This will be a two part mission; Part one is a flag line along the entrance to Tawasentha Park for the early morning arrival of The Wall. Part two will be a flag line during the opening ceremonies later that evening.
