Parks College, located a few miles east of St. Louis, Missouri, hosted
the Moving Wall in June 1987. Among the activities scheduled was
a ceremony conducted by the Women's Vietnam Memorial Project group,
who also had on display a replica of the proposed statue to
commemorate women's service in Vietnam: the figure of a single
nurse looking downward, with her upturned steel pot in her hands.
Also held were an interfaith memorial service, a POW-MIA
ceremony, and a fly-over of F-4 fighter planes from the Missouri
Air National Guard.
A special memorial ceremony was held for alumni of Parks College, which
was founded in 1927 as the first federally-certified college of aviation
in the nation.
