THE DIGNITY MEMORIAL VIETNAM WALL VISITS NEW YORK CITY

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum at Pier 86 in New York City will
host the Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall from November 7 - 20, 2011.

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum at Pier 86 in New York City will
host the Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall from November 7 - 20, 2011.
This is the first time ever the traveling wall will be in
Manhattan.  The wall is a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam
Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., standing 240 feet long and eight feet high.  It is inscribed with the names of more than 58,000
Americans who died or are missing in Vietnam.  We are honored during
this Veteran’s Day period to have our rubbing kits available at the Intrepid Museum shop so loved ones can create a lasting black wax impression of a person’s name from its inscription on the wall.

The wall serves as a reminder of the human losses and speaks of the heroism, courage and bravery of the soldiers who fought in the Vietnam
War.  It brings people together and fosters healing to verterans and
their families and instills an awareness for all - young or old - who gaze upon it.
