Traveling Memorial Wall on display April 17-21

The Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall is a three-quarter-scale traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.  Reed-Culver Funeral Home is proud to display the exhibit from Wednesday, April 17 through Sunday, April 21 at the Sequoyah High School Football Field, located at 17091 South Muskogee Avenue in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.

Free and open to the public 24 hours a day, the replica is eight feet high and 240 feet long. Its black, reflective surface is inscribed with the names of more than 58,000 servicemen and women who died or are missing in Vietnam.  Paper and pencils will be provided so visitors can make rubbings of names etched on the wall.

Created by the Dignity Memorial network of funeral, cremation and cemetery service providers in 1990, the Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall is dedicated to all Americans who served in Vietnam and honors all veterans of the U.S. military.  Click here for a Schedule of Events.
