The Gregory City Park will be the site of The Moving Wall, a 1/2 scale replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall. People will be able to visit The Moving Wall from the evening of June 29th through July 6th.
Located in the north east corner of the park, there will be volunteers on hand 24 hours a day, to assist visitors in locating names of friends and loved ones on the Wall.

Opening ceremonies are scheduled for Saturday, July 2 at 10:00 a.m. The Moving Wall is an exact replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C. It is 252 feet long and just over 6 feet in height. It contains over 58,000 names of U.S. military personnel who gave their lives in Vietnam and is dedicated to the 2.7 million men and women who served in the U.S. military in Vietnam. Included on the wall are approximately 1,300 names of military personnel who are still unaccounted for prisoners of war (P.O.W.s) and missing in action (M.I.A.s).

Several volunteers from this area have donated time and money to bring The Moving Wall to Gregory. Everyone is invited to take the time and visit The Moving Wall and honor those men and women who served and gave their lives in Vietnam.
