Vietnam Memorial Traveling Wall
July 7, 2021 @ 8:00 am - July 11, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
A Vietnam traveling memorial wall is scheduled to make a stop at the Oceana County Fairgrounds July 8-12.
The wall is 80 percent the size of the national monument in Washington DC,
Inscribed on the black granite wall are the names of more than 58,000 men and women who gave their lives or remain missing.
The wall will be escorted into town Wednesday, July 8, and then set up will occur Thursday. It will be disassembled Sunday, July 12, prior to leaving town. There will be an opening ceremony and a closing ceremony.
Residents can visit the wall any time during its stop. There will be no charge for admission.
This is the first time the traveling memorial replica has been on display in Hart.
Booths with veterans services will be set up on the grounds. Many veterans may not realize what services are available to them, and this will allow them to learn more about that, she said.
The “Through The Eyes” traveling Vietnam museum will also be included in the visit.
The event is still in the planning stages, so more details will develop as it draws near.
