American Veterans Traveling Tribute - Memorial Day Weekend 2017

Veterans and active members of America's armed services travel great distances and make great sacrifices to preserve and protect freedom and liberty. How far will you travel to honor their contribution?

The American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT) will visit Pasco's City View Cemetery over Memorial Day weekend. The mission of the project is to travel the nation to honor, respect, and remember the men and women who served, and to pay specific tribute to those who gave all in service to the nation. Since the tribute is mobile, it allows people to honor and respect veterans and active military personnel without having to travel great distances.

The AVTT presents the Traveling Wall, an 80 percent scale version of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. Across its 360-foot length the wall contains every name etched on the original. At its apex, the memorial is an impressive 8' tall. The Traveling Wall began traveling in 1998.  The AVTT's Traveling Wall is the largest Wall replica traveling the USA. Remembering, educating, and respect are the main focuses of AVTT, honoring our nation's heroes one community at a time.

About the AVTT: The American Veterans Traveling Tribute is a veteran-owned project committed to travel the USA to honor, respect, and remember those who served, and pay specific tribute to those who gave all. AVTT is not government sponsored or affiliated, but funded through sponsorship fees, donations, and sale of merchandise at events. AVTT is contracted by The Texas Freedom Tribute (TFT) an IRS designated 501c(3), to provide The Wall, crew, and expertise. Donations or support to AVTT's mission via TFT are qualified charitable tax deductions. For more information on AVTT, visit www.americanveteranstravelingtribute.com.
