Vietnam War Moving Wall Headed To Paris

Comrades Forever
"The Moving Wall" is the half-size replica of the Washington, DC Vietnam Veterans Memorial and has been touring the country for thirty plus years. When John Devitt attended the 1982 dedication in Washington, he felt the positive power of "The Wall." He vowed to share that experience with those who did not have the opportunity to go to Washington.
John, Norris Shears, Gerry Haver, and other Vietnam veteran volunteers built The Moving Wall. It went on display for the first time in Tyler, Texas in October of 1984. Two structures of The Moving Wall now travel the USA from April through November, spending about a week at each site.
Sponsor is any organization or group of individuals that wants The Moving Wall to visit their area and is willing to do the work to make the local arrangements as described in "Scheduling a Visit of The Moving Wall." Sponsors are frequently civic groups, schools, or veterans' organizations. Sponsoring normally requires months of planning by dozens of local volunteers.

The Paris/Henry County Chamber of Commerce began planning for the event years ago, making the request with the Moving Wall organizers that the local community be placed on the schedule

The Moving Wall will be placed at the Eiffel Tower Park, in the large field between the swimming pool and Memorial Park Cemetery. It’s handicapped accessible. There is plenty of parking there.

The Moving Wall must be staffed 24 hours a day for all five days and local veterans’ groups will be volunteering for that.

A public ceremony will open the Moving Wall August 31.

The Moving Wall was in our area in 2013, at Camden, and drew huge crowds.

Moving Wall - Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Paris Labor Day Weekend



Chamber Prepping for "The Moving Wall" At Eiffel Tower Park
Paris, Tenn.- The Paris Henry County Chamber of Commerce will be bringing “The Moving Wall” a Vietnam Veterans Memorial to Paris for Labor Day Weekend.
The Moving Wall will be on display at Eiffel Tower Park, available 24 hours a day from 1pm Thursday August 31st until 1pm Monday September 4th. There is an opening ceremony at 5pm August 31st and a closing ceremony at Noon September 4th. The exhibit and ceremonies are open to the public.
Local Veterans organizations, National Guard Members, and community members will serve as volunteers.
Chamber Executive Director Mark Johnson said, “this will be a very moving and fulfilling event which will offer our community an experience that many otherwise would never have. We’re excited about the educational value it will bring to our youth.”
The Paris Henry County Chamber of Commerce has helped to organize and fund the event, but couldn’t do it without help from volunteers from our veterans and military organizations in the community and region. Johnson said it takes a large volunteer effort and anyone interested in volunteering can call the Chamber at 642-3431 no later than August 15th.
For more information on the moving wall, visit www.themovingwall.org. For more information on the local event visit the chamber’s website at www.paristnchamber.com
