Be Aware of Copies of
THE MOVING WALL™
"The Moving Wall™" is a trademark of Vietnam Combat Veterans, Ltd.
are on the web site of the original The Moving Wall™. Vietnam Veterans
John Devitt, Gerry Haver, and Norris Shears founded The Moving Wall, and
first placed it on public display in 1984.
||Over the past Eighteen years,
some organizations and profit–making enterprises—with no
relationship to us—have made similar models of The Wall.
One organization markets theirs as "The Moving
Wall" in spite of letters from us and the confusion and pain it causes
their "customers." Yes, it is ironic that someone would claim to honor war casualties by engaging in trademark infringement.
||If you contract for a
display visit with one of these other organizations, be sure you know
who they are. If you heard advertising for a visit of The Moving Wall™
at a location near you, but it is not listed in our
schedules, it must be one of the copies. If you need details about
the locations or schedules for displays of these copies, try calling
local veterans' organization chapters. Consult your local phone directory
for American Legion, AmVets, Veterans
of Foreign Wars, Veterans of the Vietnam War, Vietnam Veterans of America,
or VietNow. You might even
consider contacting City Hall—communities often sponsor a display.
