Brick Laying – Run For The Wall Reunion 2019
August 31 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Our Run For The Wall friends will once again lay bricks into our Memorial Walkway at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, on Saturday, August 31st, beginning at 9 a.m., as part of their annual reunion in Angel Fire, NM. The public is welcome to attend. RFTW helps us greatly by laying about 400 bricks annually, including 8 Medal of Honor Bricks.
The bricks that line the Memorial walkways commemorate all United States veterans, living or deceased. Each brick has a story. The dates on the bricks reflect the dates of service. If there is no ending date that person is still serving. Two stars signify the person was killed in action. One star denotes missing in action.
Bricks must be purchased by July 5, 2019 to be included in this year’s brick-laying. If you are interested in purchasing a brick for placement in the Memorial Walkway, please follow this link:
