The wall is a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C.
Inscribed on it are the names of 58,318 people.
Organizers say it took years to raise $102,000 to fabricate the wall. The veterans say it’s their duty to share it with the rest of the world.
« Even if you have no friends or relatives on this wall, and you walk up and you see all these names, it affects you, it will get to you, » said Michael Bertell, President of the AV Mobile Wall.
