In remembrance of the 49th anniversary marking the end of the U.S. involvement in Vietnam, the ASOM will host an outdoor exhibit: The Moving Wall, the only replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C. This exhibit will on the parade field and open 24 hours a day.  Inside the ASOM, visitors will also have an opportunity to see several focus exhibits highlighting museum artifacts from Soldiers who served in Vietnam.

The ASOM will host a documentary screening of “The Wall That Heals” featuring North Carolinians who served in Vietnam, and discussions of service with Medal of Honor recipients (invited).
