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.

    • Had a fun week of fishing...thought I would share some spots!

    • Hey everyone has anyone started to pickle yet? Just did 65 quarts of pickles over the weekend. Also did some jars with the carolina repear pepper. Can't wait to try them.
    • I like the Wal-Mart corn to!

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
