There is no time that it is not fitting to remember...be grateful ....show appreciation for the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice during the Vietnam War. If you were not aware before...let us show and tell you about "The Moving Wall." There are two half size replicas of the wall that it is in Washington D.C. that travel the country fron April thru November.
Their tour/appearances are frequently sponsored by local civic organizations or groups of individuals who agree to make the necessary local arrangements to showcase the memorial on its visit to the area.
The city of Greenfield Wisconsin is the first city in Milwaukee county to host a display of the wall.
The display is open 24 hours a day at Konkel Park, 5151 West Layton Avenue. The opening ceremony which is free and open to the pyblic, is scheduled for 1 pm on Friday, May24. The ceremony will have participation by Junior Reserve officers Training Corps (ROTC) Cadets from Greefield High School as well as local Vietnam Veterans.
If you would like the opportunity to see the wall, pay your respects to the more than 58,000 men and women who gave their all...and perhaps see the name or names of people you knew who made the ultimate sacrifice, click HERE to see the schedule of where the wall will be for the remainder of the year.
Take a moment now...close your eyes....know that there are parents, wives, husbands and children who miss each of those people...it is so much more than columns of names...it is a monument of sacrifice...and we are forever grateful for theirs...for us.
