MOST WALLS KEEP PEOPLE OUT, THIS WALL BRINGS PEOPLE TOGETHER
Rancho Simi Recreation and Park District is hosting the AV-Wall, The Mobile Vietnam Memorial Wall, a 250’ replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and a mobile Education Center, with more than 58,000 names of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam. The AV Wall is free to the public, open 24 hours each day, and will close on Tuesday, May 28th at 8:00 am.
This is a unique opportunity to see the traveling exhibit honoring the Americans who served and sacrificed during the Vietnam War. Visit the mobile education center, find the names of family and loved ones, and plan to attend special programs and ceremonies while The Mobile Vietnam Memorial Wall is on display.
