Veterans and active members of America’s armed services travel great distances and make great sacrifices to preserve and protect freedom and liberty. How far will you travel to honor their contribution?
The American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT) is visiting Pasco’s City View Cemetery over Memorial Day weekend. The mission of the project is to travel the nation to honor, respect, and remember then men and women who served, and to pay specific tribute to those who gave all in service. Since the tribute is mobile it allows people to honor and respect veterans and active military personnel without having to travel great distances to do so.
The AVTT presents the Traveling Wall, an 80 percent scale version of the Viet Nam Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. Across its 360-foot length the wall contains every single name etched on the original. At its apex the memorial is an impressive eight-feet tall. The Traveling Wall was completed in early 1998 and began traveling that year. AVTT’s Traveling Wall is the largest Wall replica traveling the USA. Remembering, educating, and respect are the main focuses of AVTT. Honoring our nation’s heroes one community at a time.
The AVTT will be open at City View Cemetery 24 hours a day from 11am Thursday, May 25 to 3pm Tuesday, May 30. For the full schedule of events for the AVTT, please visit www.pasco-wa.gov/avtt.
