VALLEY CENTER & THE MOVING WALL
The Moving Wall" is a half-size replica of the Washington, D.C. Vietnam Veterans Memorial and has been touring the country for 30 plus years. The wall contains the names of over 58,000 people who lost their lives from the Vietnam War. "The Moving Wall" will be making its return to Lions Park in Valley Center Oct. 21-25, 2021.
THE MOVING WALL
"When John Devitt attended the 1982 dedication in Washington, he felt the positive power of "The Wall." He vowed to share that experience with those who did not have the opportunity to go to Washington. John, Norris Shears, Gerry Haver, and other Vietnam veteran volunteers built The Moving Wall. 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."
