The Vietnam Memorial Traveling Wall will be able for viewing at the Cave City Convention Center September 1 – 4, 2017. The wall is approximately 350 feet long with over 50,000 names of fallen heroes from the Vietnam Conflict.

“The Cave City Tourist & Convention Commission is sponsoring this project as a means to give back to the community and to honor our military veterans. Many Vietnam veterans were disrespected for their service and it time for us to say, “Thank You”, says Sharon Tabor, Executive Director of the Cave City Tourist & Convention Commission. “With the sponsorship of the tourism commission, the veteran and law enforcement organizations assisting with the event will receive 100% of any donations offered by visitors during their visit. The volunteer efforts can be focused on the event rather than fund-raising.”

Many volunteers are needed to assist with the event, especially for the locator booth where visitors can find the panel where a name is engraved. This requires a minimum of two volunteers between the hours of 9am-9pm September 1-4. Working 3-4 hours shifts will require 24-48 individuals to assist over the four-day period. Training will be provided.

An exhibit honoring the fallen heroes of the BRADD region consisting of Allen, Barren, Butler, Edmonson, Hart, Logan, Metcalf, Monroe, Simpson, and Warren will also be on display.

If interested in volunteering 2-4 hours of time for the Vietnam Memorial Traveling Wall, for any shifts between 9am-9pm during September 1-4, 2017, contact Glenda Butts or Thomas Horner at glendarbutts@yahoo.com.
