2019 Moving Wall

Did you make it down to the Moving Wall at Wickham Park?

Here is some information about the traveling wall:

The "Moving Wall" has been traveling the country since 1984.

The six-foot tall (at the center) Travelling Wall is a 3/5 scale model of the actual monument in Washington, D.C.

The wall stretches 300 feet long and like the wall in Washington, it is covered with the names of the Americans who died in the Vietnam War. The event at Wickham Park typically draws thousands of people, including Vietnam veterans.

Hundreds of motorcyclists many with American flags in tow wound down U.S. 1 to Wickham Park as part of the annual procession escorting the Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall into Melbourne.

As of 2011, the total is now 58,272 names listed on the Wall, as it is in Washington, D.C.

It was on display from May 9th through May12th. There are many displays and mini-museums on display in Wickham Park near the Wall.

Put this on your calendar for next year. It is a truly enlightening experience. A special Thank you to all Veterans and everyone who has served our Country in any way!

Keep the Shiny Side Up!
