DACONO, Colo., Sept. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Veterans Traveling Tribute Vietnam Wall is coming to the Carbon Valley area from September 15th – 18th and will be at the Furniture Row located at 3440 E. I-25 Frontage Road, Dacono, CO 80516. It has been over twenty years since the wall was displayed in Weld County, Colorado and Furniture Row is honored to host the event.
At 360 feet long, the AVTT Traveling Vietnam Wall is an 80% replica of the permanent Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC and includes all of the names of the US service members who gave their lives during the Vietnam War. The wall will be escorted to Furniture Row during a highway procession on Wednesday, September 14th by the Patriot Guard, the American Legion, VFW Warriors motorcycle riders, the Weld County Sheriff, as well as the Fort Lupton and Dacono police departments arriving approximately at 4pm.
The Grand Opening Ceremony will begin at 1pm on Thursday the 15th and will include a four-jet flyover, a keynote speaker, and a display of 300 American flags. The wall will be on exhibit from 8am – 8pm through the weekend and during this time, each name will be read at a podium. The Furniture Row Racing #78 Car will also be on site for the duration of the event.
"Giving the community a place to honor and remember our American heroes is a small, but sincere way that we can pay tribute to those who have offered the greatest sacrifice for our freedoms," said Furniture Row Owner and Vietnam veteran, Barney Visser. "I want to give people a weekend dedicated to honoring the sacrifices that so many Americans have made and continue to make for freedom. This event is not only to remember casualties of the Vietnam War, but to honor and show pride for all of our country's veterans."
The closing ceremony will end with the National Guard and Color Guard rendering honors on Sunday at 3pm. The weekend's entire event will be handicapped accessible and is free to the public.
