When John Devitt attended the 1982 dedication in Washington, he felt the healing power of "The Wall". He vowed to take that healing to persons who did not have the opportunity to go to Washington.
The first Moving Wall was built by John, Norris Shears, Gerry Haver, and other Vietnam veteran volunteers. It went on display in Tyler, Texas in October of 1984. Three of these Moving Walls now travel the USA from April to November, spending about a week at each site.
