The Moving Wall is coming to Hendersonville

Post 290  Hendersonville, Tennessee

Date:
November 3, 2017

Start Time:
9:00 am-5/6:00 pm

Location:
Hendersonville Memory Gardens

"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.

The Moving Wall will be at Hendersonville Memory Gardens from 3 November to 5 November. Please feel free to visit and pay your respects! We are also looking for volunteers to stand watch. Contact Post 290 for more details
