Traveling wall coming to Haverhill
Since the tribute is mobile it allows people to honor and respect veterans and active military personnel without having to travel great distances to do so.
Across its 370-foot length, the wall contains every single name etched on the original. At its apex, the memorial is 8 feet tall. It was completed in 1998 and began traveling that year.
The other memorials and exhibits included in the AVTT event include:
911 Memorial, an exhibit to make sure "we never forget."
Vietnam Remembered depicts the timeline of the Vietnam conflict.
Tribute Panel. People can purchase a custom inscribed dog tag to place on our tribute panel as a tribute and personal message to a loved ones.
World War II. The tribute helps assure that all living veterans are honored. AVTT presents displays of pictures and information, which include timelines and casualty by country that pay specific tribute to World War II veterans.
