Visitors trickled onto the Delaney Park Strip to visit the Moving Wall on Wednesday, June 27, 2012. The memorial is a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall in Washington D.C. For Roy Kenick of Anchorage, the wall is a poignant reminder of the longest year of his life. He served one year in Vietnam as an Army specialist with the 1st Logistical Command in Long Binh, he said. Kenick, who lived in Nome before he enlisted, shared some thoughts about what it was like to step off the plane in Vietnam 44 years ago and how that experience impacted his life.
Local Rotary Clubs organized by the Anchorage South Rotary are hosting The Moving Wall June 26 through July 2, with a remembrance ceremony set for 1 p.m. Saturday, June 30. Please see more pictures in this photo gallery.
