The Vietnam Traveling Wall

Carol Jutte sent along these wonderful pictures of the Vietnam Traveling Wall
and Soldiers Cross. Look for Carol's upcoming article about the traveling wall  in our Brunswick Town DAR Newsletter.

The Vietnam Traveling Wall is a 3/5 scale of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC, it stands six feet tall at the center and covers almost 300 feet from end to end.
This Traveling Memorial stands as a reminder of the great sacrifices made during the Vietnam War. It was made for the purpose of helping heal and rekindle friendships and to allow people the opportunity to visit loved ones in their home town who otherwise may not be able to make the trip to Washington.
