Oral History Project Helps Vietnam Moving Memorial Wall

Oral History Project summer school members helped out at the recent Vietnam Moving Memorial Wall which was shown in Wausau. A Wausau Daily Herald article reports that "The wall, an 80 percent scale replica of the memorial, is one of five in the world. The wall is part of a large display passing through Wausau that honors veterans, as well as police and fire service members, called the American Veterans Traveling Tribute."D.C. Everest Oral History Project students manned the computers where people can come to locate where they might find the name of a loved one who died. The computer prints out a sheet that tells which panel the person can be found on. The students were also collecting names for an upcoming project they are doing in which they will be interviewing Vietnam veterans for another book about veterans. Anyone Vietnam veteran who would like to be interviewed can contact me: oral history books can be found at the D.C. Everest Oral History Project website.
