The Vietnam moving wall to Oneonta

$270 of $7,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 18 months
Two years ago I raised funds for a memorial dedicated to those from my hometown. Now I am fundraising to bring the Vietnam Moving Wall to my hometown. This not only honors those KIA from Oneonta, N Y but honors all those men and women killed in Vietnam. The wall gives friends, family and veterans a place to remember those who gave their all to their country. We need to raise $7,000.00 for this. This will help cover the cost of bring the wall to Oneonta, N Y, advertising, signs, lodging, security and all things needed to get the wall here. Funds are need immediately so we can pay deposits etc. I am a Marine served during the Vietnam War. Many I went to boot camp never came home. I want to honor them as well as all those who never came home. Please help us in honoring those young men and women who gave all for their country.  ALL GAVE SOME, SOME GAVE ALL!! Thank you in advance for your support.

My father died as a result of his service during the Vietnam War. I thank you for starting the campaign and for all those that donated. I took my son when he was too young to appreciate it when it came to the Binghamton area. He is now old enough to see and appreciate it now.
