‘The Moving Wall’ Vietnam Memorial ~ Reno, Nevada

Saturday afternoon we went to Rancho San Rafael park in Reno to see the travelling Vietnam Memorial Wall. It will be here until June 21st. There are a group of volunteers that will help you find your family member on the Wall. It is open 24 hours.

THE MOVING WALL is a half-scale replica of Washington DC’s Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Since 1984, The Moving Wall has toured the country, having installed itself for public viewing at over a thousand towns and cities.

All of my immediate and extended family served in WWII and Korea, so I had no family name on the Wall…but we wanted to visit to honor those that did serve.

The first sight we came upon was a sea of US flags…they represent all of the men and women who have fallen SINCE the Vietnam War.

Thank you.
