The wall, a 3/5 scale replica of the permanent memorial in Washington, DC, will arrive via convoy on July 12 and will be open for visitation and remembrances July 14-16. The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall® stands six feet tall at the center, covers almost 300 feet from end to end, and has 58,307 names inscribed on its surface.
