Vietnam Veterans Memorial Moving Wall to visit Oxford

A half-sized replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall will arrive in Oxford on April 21, due to the hard work of John McKendree, president of Rolling Thunder, Inc., Chapter One Mississippi.

Like the original Wall in Washington, D.C., the Moving Wall contains the names of the 58,228 men and women who lost their lives in Vietnam or remain missing in action. It is a solemn and dignified memorial that reminds us that the cost of freedom is never free.

The Wall will be at the Oxford Conference Center, located on Ed Perry Boulevard at the intersection of Highway 7 and Sisk Avenue.

The Wall will be available for viewing 24 hours a day beginning at 9 a.m. on April 23 and ending on April 30 at 4 p.m.

For additional information call Lila Goolsby at 662-832-0938 or John McKendree at 662-234-1084.
