Mission Statement

A visit to Miamisburg by The Moving Wall, a half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the Mall in Washington DC. The Moving Wall will arrive in Miamisburg September 25, 2008, and be in place in Library Park, Miamisburg Ohio for public visits until September 29th.

The Moving Wall has traveled across the United States with the purpose of honoring local heroes and to help bring healing to veterans, families, and friends of those who died or are missing in Vietnam, especially for those unable to visit the Memorial in Washington. The Moving Wall also helps educate the community about the war and its impact on our nation and veterans.

We strive to educate the community on the price veterans paid for us and the respect they deserve from us. We are committed, as a group, to The Wall in Washington, DC annually to pay our respect and to honor those who gave their lives for our country.

Description

The Moving Wall will be displayed in Miamisburg at the Library Park on Rte 725.

It is our hope to make this visit a community event, drawing support from as many individuals and agencies as possible. This will involve the considerable donation of time, effort and financial support if it is to be successful. There will be numerous expenses for related support, and many volunteers will be needed to serve as official guards around the clock, assist visitors in finding names on the Wall and taking care of the many other details necessary.

Because this will be the first and perhaps the only time The Moving Wall will come to Miamisburg, we are counting on widespread support, both volunteer and financial, for this project.

The opening ceremony will be at 5:30 pm, September 25 and will remain open to the public, 24 hours a day, until it closes approximately 2:00 pm on the 29th.
