Vietnam Moving Wall

Good Day Kansas

“The Moving Wall”, a half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, is coming to Valley Center this weekend.  The memorial contains the names of over 58,000 Americans who lost their lives or who were determined missing in Vietnam.   The wall has been traveling the country for over 30 years.    For those Veterans and families who cannot make it to Washington, D.C., the moving wall provides an opportunity to see it, and to honor to our Veterans.

The much-anticipated Wall will arrive by truck tomorrow, Thursday October 21, 2021 escorted into town by a motorcycle parade and will be delivered to Lions Park.   There, volunteers will begin unloading the panels of the wall and setting it up.  The wall will be open to the public at 12pm, and will remain open 24 hours per day until noon on Monday, October 25, 2021.  The wall will be illuminated at night.

An opening Ceremony will begin Friday at 10 am, featuring a KC135 Flyover by McConnel Airforce Base.  Roger Donlan, the Vietnam First Medal of Honor Recipient will be speaking as well as many others.  What a beautiful way to share gratitude and pay respects.
