The Moving Wall

July 10 at 3:00 pm - July 14 at 5:00 pm

The Moving Wall which honors over 58,000 individuals who sacrificed their lives is coming to Tioga County, PA, in July.
“We’re so excited to be able to bring this moving version of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial to the area. This is an opportunity for those unable to attend the full-size version in Washington, D.C., to honor those who sacrificed their lives for us all,” said Jessica Barron, Project Coordinator of the upcoming July event. “This event is not possible without the support of area businesses and volunteers from all communities and branches of service.”
Opening ceremonies will be held on Wednesday, July 10, 2024, starting at 3:00 PM and people can view the Moving Wall 24 hours each day through closing ceremonies on Sunday, July 14, 2024, at 5:00 PM.
The Moving Wall will depart the area on Monday, July 15, 2024.
“The Moving Wall,” which is a half-size replica of “The Wall,” the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC. It was built in 1982, to honor those who died in the Vietnam War, “The Wall” now has carved into it the names of the 58,300 American military personnel (eight of whom were women) who were direct casualties of the war, including about 1300 who are still considered Missing In Action (MIA), but officially classified as “Dead, body not recovered”.
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 and has been touring the country for more than thirty years. Two structures of The Moving Wall now travel the USA from April through November, spending about a week at each site.
The last time The Moving Wall was in Tioga County, PA was back in June of 2017 where it was set up at the Island Park in Blossburg, PA.
