Faculty, Students Contribute to Traveling Vietnam Wall Memorial Event

Traveling Wall

The AVTT  mission creates a forum for communities to come together to honor those who have sacrificed for their country and to “educate all to the cost of freedom.”

The AVTT Traveling Wall recently came to St. Louis from Texas, provided by American Veterans Traveling Tribute.

Webster University School of Communications professor and Webster-Kirkwood Times editor Don Corrigan was instrumental in bringing the Vietnam War Wall exhibit to the area.

The Wall was open for public viewing at Lindbergh High School from June 13-16.

Ceremonies were held each day of the exhibit. Corrigan, a Show-Me Hero Salute committee member, served as master of ceremonies for the Wall’s opening on Thursday, June 13.

Corrigan also teaches a course at Webster called Vietnam and the Media.
