Arizona Patriot Guard Riders Escort Traveling Vietnam Wall To Prescott

Arizona Patriot Guard Riders will provide an escort of the semi-truck carrying The Traveling Vietnam Wall into Prescott this afternoon, Wednesday, March 18.

The group is gathering at Grand Canyon Harley, Highway 69, in Mayer. Kickstands are up at 3:00 p.m. and the Wall is scheduled to be at Gateway Mall at 4:15 p.m. It will be assembled tomorrow morning.

The Wall will open to the public on Thursday, March 19, at 1:30 p.m. with a small ceremony. A larger ceremony will take place Friday, March 20, at 5:30 p.m.

The Traveling Vietnam Wall, an American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT), provides an opportunity for communities across the country to pay homage to those servicemen and servicewomen who were lost or killed in the Vietnam War. The Wall is 360 feet long and 8 feet high at the apex, an 80 percent scale of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C.

Like the original, The Traveling Vietnam Wall chronologically lists the names of more than 58,000 Americans known to have died or who were declared missing during the conflict in Southeast Asia that ended 40 years ago.
