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.
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. It will be in Waltham August 10th through the 16th.
