Numerous Egyptian Board of REALTOR® members volunteered at
the Vietnam Moving Wall for its first appearance in Marion, IL.
The Moving Wall, a half-sized replica of the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial in Washington D.C., stopped in Marion May 3-5, 2019 at the Marion
Veterans Administration Medical Center campus.
The replica is 375 feet in length and stands 7.5 feet high
at its tallest point. It displays 58,312 names.
The event was made possible by volunteers and financial
donors. Veterans Administration Medical Center campus put out a call for
volunteers in March 2019. Over 20 EBOR members answered that call and signed up
to volunteer at the event.
Members took on roles as greeters, wall guides, volunteer check-in/information assistance, parking lot assistants and shuttle drivers during the three day period.
According to Maria Buehler, without the community partners, the event would not have been successful.
