    I am not moved much by war memorials, but found the visit to the wall in Washington D.C. some time ago a very somber experience. Had the war gone another two years, I would have been eligible to be drafted. My Mom hated it, and had plans to send me to Canadian relatives (I had dual citizenship at the time) had it continued.

    I did not know this 'traveling' version existed. From what I've read, this is 3/5 scale to the actual wall. I am sure it is still quite impactful.

    I saw a traveling wall back in the '80's that wasn't built to this scale, it was smaller. It is a moving experience to witness all the names. I hope to see the real wall some day.
