Traveling memorial visits Marshall County

Posted on Sep 29 2019 in Marshall County REMC
Visitors from throughout the county reflect on the sacrifices made by our military heroes while visiting the American Veterans Traveling Tribute, a replica of the Vietnam War Memorial.

The Operation Round Up Board was honored to support the American Legion Post 27 in bringing the American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT) to Marshall County on Sept. 12-15. This 80% scale replica of the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C., spans 360 feet and is 8 feet high at its apex. Listed on the wall are the 58,282 names of the soldiers lost in Vietnam. 

AVTT prides itself on the support of our Armed Forces and continues our mission of Honor, Respect, Remembrance for our fallen and serving men and women in uniform. Additionally, AVTT allows those without the means or ability to travel to Washington, D.C., to pay respect and share in the experience of honoring our heroes.
