Join us August 8-12 at Ford Field in Livonia for The Moving Wall Vietnam Veterans Memorial Visit!

The Moving Wall is
• A half-size replica of the original Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.
• Engraved with the names of 58,318 men and women killed in Vietnam
• A place to remember and reflect
• It’s free, open 24-hours

Many activities and displays will enhance this event:
• A motorcycle escort leading the wall to the park
• A ceremony each evening at 6 p.m. (Thursday-Sunday)
• Exceptional traveling museums
• Living encampments by Veterans
• Military vehicles
• A USO-style show with a Vegas-quality “Bob Hope” performer on Friday and Saturday at Stymelski Park

Volunteers are needed (look up names on the wall for visitors, read names aloud at the wall, escort disabled visitors, help keep the area clean, provide information, etc.) All volunteers must complete a waiver to participate.
