More than 30,000 people visited the wall during the four days it was on site,said Tom Flynn of Hillcrest. “We distributed close to 10,000 memorial booklets, and had a parade and ceremony.”

In the center of the Avenue of 444 Flags are 12 steel and glass monuments, 12 feet tall by 4 feet wide, in a circle around a beautiful fountain. The first 2 feet of the towers are stainless steel; above are five glass panels, each 2 feet high by 4 feet wide. Etched in the dark glass are the names of all military personnel who have died in the War on Terror since 1975.

Moving Wall

The Vietnam “Moving Wall” is coming to Hermitage, PA. From Aug. 2 to 6, the traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial will be set up in the grassy area next to John Flynn Funeral Home at 2690 E. State St. in Hermitage.

“The Moving Wall” is the half-size replica of the Washington, DC Vietnam Veterans Memorial and has been touring the country for more than twenty years.

When John Devitt attended the 1982 dedication in Washington, he felt the positive power of “The Wall.” He vowed to share that experience with those who did not have the opportunity to go to Washington.

John, Norris Shears, Gerry Haver, and other Vietnam veteran volunteers built The Moving Wall. It went on display for the first time in Tyler, Texas in October of 1984. Two structures of The Moving Wall now travel the USA from April through November, spending about a week at each site.

War on Terror vets forever remembered in Hermitage (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review)

Beneath an undulating canopy of flags, Ron Veverka walked purposefully to the 12-foot-high steel and glass pillar.

He pointed to a name etched into one of the glass plates: Sgt. David M. Veverka.

“There he is,” said Veverka, 63, of Sharon in Mercer County. “My son. He was killed in Iraq, south of Baghdad, in 2006. He was a convoy commander. They were attacked, and his driver was killed. He pulled his gunman to safety before they got him.”
