ABOUT THE WALL: The Wall Of Remembrance Was Inspired By The Three Factors: A Wish By Active Duty Military For A Memorial, The Cowardly Acts Of Terrorists On 9/11/2001, And Vietnam Veterans. The Memorial Was Designed, Built And Funded By United States Marine David Brown And Founder Richard (Jr) Nichols In 2011 For The 10-Year Remembrance Of 9/11. It Was Built To Be Displayed Once But Due To The Reaction, They Both Agreed To Find A Way To Travel Around America. The Current Wall Will Be Retired After The Sacramento Visit And Funds Will Be Raised To Build A New Memorial Wall.
