HOTH: The “Moving Wall” / 4 Aug 16 / Hermitage, PA

The Vietnam Veterans
“Moving Wall”
Museum Foundation
4th August 2016

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.
