ELMIRA, NY (WENY) -- The Moving Wall, a half-size traveling replica of the national Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall, is coming to Elmira in July 2022.

The wall will be installed on June 30th at Eldridge Park, and remain in place until July 4th. It will be accessible to the community 24/7 during, and will be recognized with an opening and closing ceremony. 

The Moving Wall has toured the country for over 30 years, as a way to bring the experience to Vietnam veterans who do not have the opportunity to visit Washington, DC. 

The Moving Wall most recently visited the Twin Tiers region in 2017, and was installed at Island Park in Blossburg, PA. 

WENY News is proud to be the community partner for this event.
