Vietnam Moving Wall

8 posts in this topic

The Vietnam War Moving Wall came to Ely this week. This is a traveling replica of the monument that is permanently placed in Washington, D.C. I took these photos just as they were completing it's assembly, and it had already drawn quite a crowd:

I have seen both Walls, the traveling one, and the permanent one. It is a very sobering monumnet. My Dad is a Disable Vietnam Vet and he showed me a lot of his marine buddies on there. Nice pictrues.

I'm sure there are names on that wall that have significance for anybody who was alive in the U.S. during the late 60's to middle 70's. What sobering remembrances war brings. Jonny, the wall is in Ely through tomorrow.

I to have seen the permanent one and as Dbl says it is VERY moving experience and a must see. This thread has gotten me thinking. I will be in DC next month and I have to make sure I get over to see it again.
