Vietnam Moving Memorial Wall Comes To Medway MA May 30 to June 3

Vietnam Moving Memorial Wall Comes To Medway MA May 30 to June 3

Many may never have heard of the Vietnam Moving Memorial Wall.

 I am not sure why, but I had not.  

 This moving memorial wall is a half size replica of the Vietnam Veteran's memorial in Washington DC and for almost 30 years it has traveled around the country.   It is arriving this morning May 30 in Medway MA.   

Fitting for Memorial Day week, don't you think?<a href="">Memorial Wall Text</a> by Vera Kratochvil
This 252 foot long wall is scheduled to arrive at the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post at 8 am this morning.   There it will stay until June 3rd at noon, on display for the community, 24 hours a day, for people to visit, and to remember the 58,272 Americans who lost their lives while fighting this war.     Many young.  Many my friends of long ago.  

A group of volunteers have recorded the names of all 58,272 of those veterans, and that recording of their names will be played over a speaker system while the wall is at the VFW in Medway.    There will be supplies on hand for folks to make rubbings of the wall if they wish to do so.       The Boston VA will have grief counselors at the site.

Opening ceremonies this evening May 30th at 6 p.m.   

Closing ceremony on June 2nd at 5 pm.  

The Veterans of Foreign War Post 1526 is located at 123 Holliston Street in Medway MA.

  1. I am so excited to see this and proud of my community for arranging it to be here. I believe the state paid $15,000 out of the $25,000 of the cost - so the town must have come up with the rest.

    I was too young to understand/appreciate the sacrifices and all the politicalness of the Viet Nam War....but I have visited the Memorial in Washington, DC and get the chills just thinking of all those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Some of whom may never have known their service was appreciated.

  2. I absolutely love your website.. Pleasant colors & theme.
    Did you make this amazing site yourself? Please reply
