Vietnam memorial replica coming to A&M-Commerce

Commerce – The Moving Wall, a replica of the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington D.C., will be on the A&M-Commerce campus in November to mark the 15th Annual Veteran's Vigil on campus. The half-size replica will be on display on the University's West Lawn November 9th through November 12th.

The A&M-Commerce music department is looking for area high school trumpet players to assist in playing Taps every hour on the hour when the memorial is on campus, and the Vigil Committee is looking for area veterans to help stand guard at the Vigil site.

The presence of the Moving Wall is the culmination of three years of effort by the Veteran's Vigil committee consisting of A&M-Commerce students and staff, local citizens, and area veterans.
