The Moving Wall, the half-sized Vietnam Memorial, will be at Gore Place from Aug. 10-15, and local Veterans Organizations will take part in ceremonies. 

Gore Place is located at 52 Gore St. in Waltham (just over the town line) and the wall will be located on the back of the property, near the Grove Street entrance.

Each ceremony will have a particular dedication as follows:

Opening Ceremony, Thursday, August 11 at 7 p.m. Dedicated to those Killed in Action and Gold Star Families

Friday, August 12 at 7 p.m. Dedicated to MIAs, POWs and Their Families

Saturday, August 13 at 2 p.m. In Honor of All Vietnam Veterans

Sunday, August 14 at 2 p.m. In Honor of Our Active Duty Military

The organizers request and welcome the participation of all Veterans Organizations at any of our scheduled ceremonies.

“Specifically we would like your membership to be in uniform (or if it is too hot to wear your hat) and be part of the procession to open each of these ceremonies,” the announcement reads. “You will be seated as an organization and you will be acknowledged during the ceremony.”

Veteran groups are asked to have members report to the “Ceremony Participant Tent” 1 hour in advance of the ceremony start time (6 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and 1:00 p.m. on Saturday & Sunday) where they will receive further instruction.
