Thank you to all who came and viewed the city's exhibit of the replica of the Vietnam Memorial at Pfennig Park.
We are grateful to the volunteers from the American Legion, AVID students, along with city staff, who spent time working in shifts 24 hours a day during the exhibit.
Photos and video below show the wall setup, visitors and finally, the dismantling.
The Traveling Wall from the American Veterans Traveling Tribute organization was in Pflugerville the week of the Veterans Day holiday. It is an 80% scale version, at 360 feet wide, of the Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C. and includes every name that is on the permanent wall.
The exhibit was on display from Nov. 10 - Nov. 13, 2016
The exhibit was open around the clock for the public to visit at the lighted site in Pfennig Park, 1301 W. Pfennig Lane.
Computers were onsite from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. to look up the names of those engraved on the wall.

AVTT is a veteran-owned project, not government sponsored or affiliated, but funded through sponsorship fees, donations and sales of merchandise at viewing events. AVTT is contracted by The Texas Freedom Tribute. Donations to the organization are qualified charitable tax deductions.
The mission of the project is to travel the nation to honor, respect and remember men and women who served, and to pay specific tribute to those who gave all in that service.
The Traveling Wall was completed in early 1998, the first year it traveled. AVTT's Traveling Wall is the largest wall replica traveling the USA, not to be confused with other replica walls. Remembering, educating and respect are the main focuses of AVTT -- honoring our nation's heroes one community at a time.
The event display in Pflugerville was sponsored by the City of Pflugerville, working in cooperation with American Legion Kerlin-Lyerly Post #154.
