This traveling exhibit spans 375 feet in length and rises to seven and one-half feet tall at it apex. The Wall’s 140 panels contain the names of more than 58,000 service members.
The Wall’s trailer converts to a Mobile Education Center onsite.

Additional exhibits provide visitors a better understanding of the legacy of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the collection of items that have been left at the wall.
