At its core The Moving Wall is a community event. We gather to pay thanks to the 58,320 men and women who laid down their lives after being called into service to our nation.

A successful exhibit of The Moving Wall requires months of planning and dozens of volunteers.

The Moving Wall arrives on a flatbed truck as a series of 140 panels, each requiring a minimum of a 2-person lift. The Wall requires approximately 3 hours to assemble. When complete, it measures 252.4 feet in length, and is 6 feet tall in the middle, and tapers to 4 feet tall at both ends. We need volunteers who are willing to assemble and disassemble The Wall, and attend to the tents, tables, chairs, and flags at the site.
Visitors to The Moving Wall are often family members, friends, and veterans who are interested in finding a particular name on The Wall. We will have a computer database available with information about all of the 58,320 men and women on The Wall, and we need volunteers who will assist visitors in finding the names they’re looking for.
The Moving Wall demands an atmosphere of solemnity and respect for the fallen. The event will be open to the public, and available for visitation 24 hours a day. We need volunteers who are willing to help us maintain order, offer support to visitors who need it, and keep the premises tidy and presentable.
