To celebrate Heroes Homecoming, the Airborne & Special Operations Museum Foundation will again host the Vietnam Moving Wall at the museum’s parade field Thursday, November 9, through the morning of Monday, November 13.  A ceremony will be held at 1PM on November 11th.

The half-size replica of The Vietnam Wall in Washington, DC will allow visitors to experience seeing the more than 58,000 names of those service men and women who lost their lives during the Vietnam War. Rolling Thunder and other volunteers will assist with locating names for visitors. The Vietnam Moving Wall will be on the museum grounds and open to the public 24 hours each day. It will be a time to pause and remember the 58,479 U. S. service members who died in Vietnam.

The wall will be set up the morning of November 9th and taken down the morning of November 13th.
