The Moving Wall is made up of 58, 213 names, some men, some women, all soldiers fighting in the Vietnam War, a war that many would like to just forget. And it is so that people don't forget that the Moving Wall exists. The Wall is a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C. John Devitt, a Vietnam veteran, created the Moving Wall because he knew that there would be millions of people who would never be able to make the trip to Washington to see the memorial. Devitt also wanted to keep the memory of his fellow soldiers alive and to show people why the memorial is important.. The wall is 252 feet long made up panels that can come apart and be transported from place to place. It was believed that the Moving Wall would travel for about one year. It made it's first appearance in 1984 in Tyler, Texas during the- Tyler Rose Festival. Since that time it's popularity has grown and the response from people has kept the Moving Wall on the go- It travels from city to city, leaving the country a few times to foreign countries. There is no charge to see the wall and there are no silly souvenirs, because the wall is a tribute and a certain sense of dignity is required. To see the wall is an experience that few can describe and a sight that everyone who visits it will remember. • by Linda Canales Movittg WcMFa& The first tribute left at the wall was by a mother in Tyler, Texas when the wall made its first appearance. It was a decorated candle that the mother placed at the base of the wall by her son's name. Since then thousands of tributes have been left are hoped to be placed on display in a museum. . , movinG wall • 28i
