American Veterans Traveling Tribute & Traveling Wall Foundation

Honoring America’s Warriors

American Veterans Traveling Tribute is a group of veteran owners who are committed to travel the USA to honor, respect, and remember those who served, and pay specific tribute to those who gave all. This mission also insures that all will honor and respect those who have served our country and those who serve now. We are AVTT for short, and can be viewed on line at http://www.avtt.org. AVTT fulfills its mission statement by presenting the "Cost of Freedom" tribute and exhibits. The tribute consists of:

  1. The centerpiece: an 80% size replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall. This 80% replica contains 100% of the names. It is 370 long and about 8 ½ ft tall at apex. This exhibit is called the Traveling Wall. It was constructed in 1997- early 1998, and began traveling the USA in 1998. AVTT’s traveling wall is the largest Wall replica traveling the USA, and is not to be confused with several other replica Walls; The Moving Wall, The Dignity Wall, the Wall That Heals. These replica Walls do a fine job, and we are all on a mutual mission.
  2. The Gold Dog Tag Memorial. A series of stand up exhibits created in gold dog tags to record the names of those who gave their lives for our freedom, since Vietnam; including present day Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom. A stunning exhibit for all to see.
  3. 911 Memorials. A standup exhibit with lighted twin towers to make sure "We Never Forget". Each name is recorded according to their location.
  4. Walk of Hero’s. A series of stand up’s to pay tribute and educate all about our countries history and the conflicts the USA has been involved in to insure our freedom. Freedom did not come for free. This represents the True Cost of Freedom in lives.
  5. A nationally acclaimed art display of original paintings, called Vietnam Remembered, and more for viewing, education, and reflections. Posters and prints are available for sale.
  6. Tribute Panel. AVTT offers a personal tribute panel. Anyone can purchase a silver custom inscribed dog tag to place on our tribute panel. This is a tribute and a personal message to a loved one of past or present. AVTT’s tribute panel will travel the USA with all other exhibits.
  7. World War 11. AVTT presents displays of pictures and information to pay specific tribute to these veterans. Remembering, educating, and respect are main focuses of AVTT. These special Tributes, together with all other before identified exhibits insure that all living veterans are honored, and we are fully; American Veterans Traveling Tribute.
  8. Korean War. Moving tribute includes a time line, maps and stunning photos.
  9. Vietnam Art Display and Information. Original artwork from a Vietnam veteran.

AVTT attends sponsored events to also insure that all who cannot travel to Washington DC., have an opportunity to attend, respect, and remember. We have also experienced that many who can, will not go Washington DC. When sponsors bring AVTT to communities, these persons many times cannot resist the opportunity to attend and experience some healing. We Americans must never forget our freedom’s roots. AVTT is not government sponsored or affiliated. We are self funded via sponsorship fees, donations, and sale of merchandise at events. AVTT is also a part of The Traveling Wall Foundation (TWF); an IRS designated 501 C3. Donations or support to AVTT’ mission via TWF are qualified charitable tax deductions. The TWF is managed by a board of directors and all funds are allocated to support AVTT’s mission and non AVTT related veteran causes or charities. All comments and/or questions are welcome and encouraged to any person’s identified on our web site, http://www.avtt.org.

Thank a Veteran for the Freedom you enjoy.
