Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall coming to Fort Myers Weekend exhibition marks 100 years for local American Legion

Note to Media: The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall goes on display this weekend at JetBlue Park as part of the 100th anniversary celebration of American Legion Post 38.

The public is invited not merely to see the wall but to interact with it and connect with the memory of the more than 58,000 fallen American heroes whose names are on the memorial. Anyone who comes can take a piece of paper, place it on a name and rub a wax crayon or graphite pencil over it to create a memento of someone whose sacrifice took on a deeper meaning.

A Hughes Helicopter 0H-6A model will also be on display. The Army used the 0H-6A helicopters to fly some of the most dangerous missions in Vietnam, and only a third of the original fleet of 1,200 remained by the end of the war.

 

We look forward to seeing you there.
