The Vietnam Veterans
John Devitt, founded The Moving Wall in 1984 after attending the 1982 dedication at The Vietnam Veteran Memorial in Washington DC. The Moving Wall is a half sized replica of the memorial, visiting every state in the US including Puerto Rico, Canada, Guam, and Saipan. It has been displayed 1,338+ times. At these displays, memorabilia has been placed by family, friends, and others in remembrance of a name inscribed on The Wall. After a week long showing, the memorabilia is collected and stored for safe keeping. The goal of The Moving Wall Museum Foundation is to build or acquire a building to display a Moving Wall and the memorabilia placed at Wall sites since 1984. This museum will provide a place for the public to gather, reminisce, find healing, and learn about the Vietnam War. We hope to reach this goal through a shared vision of the necessity to preserve this history.
