    Memorial Funeral Homes has decided to lead a community effort to bring recognition for our Vietnam Veterans. We have been joined by many local organizations to help with the infrastructure and support to provide an appropriate and reflective for the Veteran's to join together, find an opportunity for healing, and share with the community to their own individual stories. Volunteers will be on site to provide assistance finding names, support to those who need it, and oversight of the Wall during the duration of it's visit.  The Moving Wall is nearly 300 feet long, about half the size of the original in Washington.  It travels the country year round to bring the education and experience to those who have not or are unable to visit the Wall in Washington.
