What is the Vietnam Memorial Wall?
November 13th, 1982 marked the dedication date of the wall to the soldiers who risked and lost their lives in the Vietnam War. This historic monument brings light to a tragic war that cost the lives of many of our friends and family. The Vietnam Wall might not be complete solace for those families torn apart by war, but it is a start. By bringing one of the mobile walls to Chino in 2016, we are bringing light into the hearts of all those who want to remember the brave.
When is the Wall Coming to Chino?
The mobile wall is coming to chino in 2016 for Chino’s Independence Day celebration. The wall will arrive in late June and it will stay for a week before it journeys somewhere else. The moving of the wall itself will be a grand event which includes over one-hundred motorcycles and the local police departments of the cities the wall travels through following and guiding the wall to its final destination. The event will raise awareness to the importance of the wall and how civilians can give tribute to those who fought so hard to keep us free.
