The Moving Wall

"On August 30th through September 4th, VFW POST 6467 and the Board of Education will host the Moving Wall in Bergenfield at the Bergenfield High School. During the day the memorial will be open and at night there will be a ceremonial reading of the names. We invite all residents to come and pay their respects but also understand that this is a solemn and sacred memorial. There will be grief counselors on site.

"The Moving Wall" is the half-size replica of the Washington, DC Vietnam Veterans Memorial and has been touring the country for thirty plus years. When John Devitt attended the 1982 dedication in Washington, he felt the positive power of "The Wall." He vowed to share that experience with those who did not have the opportunity to go to Washington.

John, Norris Shears, Gerry Haver, and other Vietnam veteran volunteers built The Moving Wall. It went on display for the first time in Tyler, Texas in October of 1984. Two structures of The Moving Wall now travel the USA from April through November, spending about a week at each site.

A Sponsor is any organization or group of individuals that wants The Moving Wall to visit their area and is willing to do the work to make the local arrangements as described in "Scheduling a Visit of The Moving Wall."

The Wall will be located at Bergenfield High School with Daily Services and Nightly Reading of names. There will be grief counselors on hand. This was brought to Bergenfield as a partnership between the Borough Veteran's Affairs Committee and the Bergenfield Board of Education.

Volunteers and Sponsors Needed.
