At a recent dinner event, the Knights of Columbus (K of C) presented Lee Rubenstein, Commander of the Marco Island American Legion Post 404, with a check for $1,000 to help fund the February 2020 visit of the new, larger Traveling Vietnam Wall to Marco Island. The estimated cost of having The Traveling Vietnam Wall visit Marco Island is $25,000.
Lee Rubenstein has made it possible for Marco Island to be the very first Wall exhibit of the 2020 Traveling Vietnam Wall. The new larger Wall will be on its 2020 thirty-city national tour after making its debut on Marco Island.
This will be the third visit to Marco Island by the Wall, following its arrival in 2011 and 2015. The new wall is 40% bigger and stretches 375 feet from end to end.
