The wall that moves you

Tech. Sgt. Jeff Castle plays taps during a remembrance ceremony, which included the Moving Vietnam Memorial Wall in downtown Anchorage, Alaska, June 30. The Moving Wall was created in 1984 by John Devitt, who wanted to bring a version of the wall to those unable to visit the original in Washington, D.C. The wall consists of 74 separate frames containing a combined total of 58,195 names. The wall is 252.83 feet; the original is 493.5 feet. The wall will be available through July 2. This year marks the 37th anniversary of the end of Vietnam War. Castle is a member of the Air Force Band of the Pacific.
