About

Texas Tech University, in partnership with its Military & Veterans Programs (MVP) and Texas South Plains Honor Flight (TSPHF), will host the American Veterans Traveling Tribute’s (AVTT) Vietnam Wall from Wednesday (Sept. 21) through Sunday (Sept. 25).

There will be an opening ceremony at 1 p.m. on Wednesday (Sept. 21) at Memorial Circle, where the wall will be on display for the duration of its visit. The Texas Tech and Lubbock communities are invited to attend.

There will be a three-volley salute during the opening ceremony and again during the closing ceremony at 3 p.m. on Sunday (Sept. 25). This is a planned event. The salute is an important part of the ceremonies as it acknowledges those who lost their lives in service to their country.

While the public is encouraged to visit the traveling wall, free parking will not be available on campus. Visitors can park free of charge at First Baptist Church, located at 2201 Broadway Street, except on Sunday during worship service times. If you park at the church, please place a sign on the windshield that states, “Visiting the AVTT.” On Sunday, visitors may park on the Texas Tech campus.

On Sept. 21, a shuttle will be available to take visitors from First Baptist Church to Memorial Circle and back. The shuttle will run between 12:30 p.m. – 1:15 p.m. and 2:15 p.m. – 2:50 p.m. For more information about the traveling wall and military and veterans programming, visit Texas Tech’s MVP website or call (806) 742-6877.
