Replica of Memorial Coming to Jefferson City
The so-called Moving Wall is a half-size replica of the full memorial. Like the original, it bears more than 58,000 names of soldiers killed or declared missing in the Vietnam War. The Moving Wall will stand on the Statehouse lawn from November 22 through the 28. Governor Blunt signed a proclamation on Monday declaring that week as "Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Week." Volunteers will be on hand from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. each day to help visitors located names etched into the surface. The traveling exhibit made a stop in West Plains last month.
