He vowed to share that experience with those who did not have the opportunity to go to Washington.
   Mr Devitt along with Norris Shears, Gerry Haver, and other Vietnam veteran volunteers built The Moving Wall. It went on display for the first time in Tyler, Texas in October of 1984. Two structures of The Moving Wall now travel the USA from April through November, spending about a week at each site.  For more information about " The Moving Wall" please visit their website at: www.themovingwall.org
