A replica of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C. is here in the West Valley.
"The Moving Wall" is in Goodyear starting at noon on October 2 through noon on October 6. It's located just west of Starpointe Residents Club at 17665 W. Elliot Rd in Estrella. It's open 24 hours a day with tour guides available from 8am - 8pm.
And it's free.
I had the privilege of seeing the actual Wall when I was in 8th grade.
My mom asked me to find the name of a young man who had grown-up in her home town.
My teacher, Mr. Jarvis, used his cane to point to the name.

That visit made an impression on me.

Please take advantage of this opportunity to remember why we're free;
to show your children what it means to be patriotic;
