Traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall Coming To Boonville
The traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall is coming to Boonville this summer. A motorcycle escort will arrive with "The Wall" at approximately 6pm June 17th. The Wall will be on display June 18th through June 21st behind Delta Flooring on Charles Street.
Every Vietnam Veteran's name will be read from "The Wall," 24/7 until the list is complete. It'll take approximately 73 hours. You can volunteer to be a part of the readings. Sign up for one of three options:
a.) 10 minute slot to read the names on the traveling Vietnam Veterans Wall
b.) On-call reader (someone that lives close that can be called in for vacant time slots)
c.) Platoon Leader (someone to help manage a small group of readers for a 2-hr block)
Anyone interested in helping with building "The Wall" can contact Ken Bundy, at 315.430.5546 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Opening ceremonies are Friday, June 19th at 6 p.m.
