The Vietnam Veterans Memorial stands as a symbol of America's honor and recognition of the men and women who served and sacrificed their lives in the Vietnam War. Inscribed on the black granite walls are the names of more than 58,000 men and women who gave their lives or remain missing. Yet the Memorial itself is dedicated to honor the "courage, sacrifice, and devotion to duty and country" of all who answered the call to serve during the longest war in U.S. history. The replica is more than 380 feet long and 8 feet high at its tallest point, made of anodized aluminum. The wall is accessible to the public free of charge from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. every day of the year. The 80 percent scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. This replica wall traveled the country with the American Veterans Traveling Tribute Mission and has now been retired, finding its permanent home here in Oklahoma thanks to the tireless efforts and donations of many people we appreciate greatly. Over 990 Oklahoma names are on this wall.
