Hundreds Visit Traveling Vietnam Wall In Prescott

The Traveling Vietnam Wall, an American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT), provided an opportunity for communities across Arizona 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.

The Wall was dissasembled on Sunday, March 22 by a group of Vietnam Vets, as it was assembled. A final ceremony took place at the Wall Sunday afternoon with a rifle-volley by American Legion Post 6, Bagpipes and Taps.
