The Moving Wall Committee has requested help in getting out the word about this special performance.

A special musical presentation has been scheduled for 7 pm Saturday, Sept. 15, at Coudersport Area Recreation Park, in conjunction with the appearance by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Moving Wall. 

Headwaters Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society will present the Military Tribute Concert. The performance will be followed by the traditional retiring of the colors and “Taps” by bugler Arthur Metzger. A project of local veterans service posts, the Potter County Commissioners and the Potter County Veterans Affairs Office. 

The first-ever local visit by the Moving Wall continues through 2 pm Monday, Sept. 17, at which time a brief closing ceremony will be held. 

The wall is positioned on the football field at CARP and is available for visits 24/7. Volunteers are onsite to assist those who wish to locate names of any of the more than 58,300 names of Vietnam War casualties listed on the wall. 

This half-size replica of the massive memorial in Washington, D.C., tours the country to memorialize those who lost their lives in the war and honor all who served.
