As a volunteer, I started this site to help A Vietnam Veteran named John Devitt whom has sacrificed & dedicated over 32+ years of his life to help fellow Veterans and their families by providing them the opportunity to visit The Moving Wall in their own communities across The United States.    He and some Vietnam Veteran friends created, & start building The Moving Wall back in 1982 displaying it for the 1st time in Tyler, Texas in 1984. John's hope is to preserve & display A Moving Wall & all the memorabilia that people placed at the base of The Moving Wall all these years.
My goal is to help him make this DREAM COME TRUE.  I hope to help him permanently display (one) of The Moving Walls in this Museum and preserve this History for ALL!  This Wall has, and will continue to provide the communities with healing and education for years to come.

Thank you,

I sure could use some support, donations and encouragement that The Moving Wall museum is a great plan for (1) of The Moving Walls. It is a historical memorial for the Vietnam Veterans that sacrificed their life for us! It has been on the road 33 years starting this spring 2017 tour.

The Moving Wall has been an inspiration to me and I want nothing more that to have a Museum to display the memorabilia from all of the people that left their memories and letters and other personal items and prayers and thoughts for others to see and read. But most of all to Respect and Honor John DeVitt for his continuing and undying dedication to his Brother and Sister Veterans.

This project is so much more than what's on the surface . How can you ever explain in words the overwhelming and touching feeling that The Wall brings? How can you reach out to people that have never experienced it themselves? While it's about The Moving Wall and the memorabilia it's also preserving a time...a place...and memories from days passed. While The Moving Wall may not have touched your life personally, the memorabilia placed can tell stories of its own that will reach out to you. The Moving Wall Museum Foundation is here to preserve these memories that are locked in boxes waiting to be shared with the world...There is a particular letter that sticks in my head as I write this that I happened to pull out of a box of memorabilia in White Pine, Michigan...sent from Vietnam...a young soldier who wrote to his fiancée while he was overseas. He talked about plans with her after he got home and all the good things in life. The letter was left by his fiancée at The Moving Wall many many years later. He never came home. This project tells stories that aren't stories. They are truths. Real life. Hard life. Help us preserve these so they can be shared for years to come to bring healing, understanding, knowledge, and peace after all these years. Thank you for all that have helped thus far and I can't wait to see what the future brings for this incredible project!
