Vietnam Memorial Traveling Wall
In celebration of the 25th Anniversary of Red, White and Blue Days, 2015, the Charleston 4th of July Committee has secured the AVTT Traveling Wall to be a part of the activities in addition to the annual parade, concerts and other activities. The American Veterans Traveling Tribute will be at the COLES COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS from JULY 1-5, 2015 during Red, White and Blue Days. The AVTT presents the Traveling Wall, an 80 percent scale version of the Viet Nam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. Across its 360-foot length the wall contains every single name etched on the original. At its apex the memorial is an impressive eight-feet tall. The mission of the project is to travel the nation to honor, respect, and remember men and women who served, and to pay specific tribute to those who gave all in that service. Since the tribute is mobile it allows people to honor and respect veterans and active military personnel without having to travel great distances to do so. The Traveling Wall was completed in early 1998 and began traveling that year. AVTT’s Traveling Wall is the largest Wall replica traveling the USA.
