First displayed in 1985, the Moving Wall is a brilliantly conceived, deeply dedicated replica of the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial in Washington DC. It is a vivid and elegiac reminder of the innocence this Nation lost during that war, and the ever needed forgiveness and reconciliation that remains for this Nation, we citizens, to give to those thousands who fought and died so far away. Through the efforts of committed veterans in this community, the wall was on display near La Grande for five days. Let us always remember and honor these sacrifices.
