AV Wall Volunteer Appreciation Potluck Dinner

Thank you to all of our dedicated volunteers!! The 2022 Palmdale display “About The Wall – Facts & Faces” was a success.  We reached thousands of people and healed many souls.

Volunteers, save the date of Monday, January 23, 2023 for our Volunteer Appreciation Potluck Dinner at 6pm at Chimbole Cultural Center.  Details to follow, but in the meantime you may plan a food item and prepare to share your story of your time at The Wall. 

Happy Holidays! See you next year.

Stolen: AV Wall Trailer

Point Man Antelope Valley and The Mobile Vietnam Memorial Wall (AV Wall) Board Members are saddened to announce that our organization was the victim of theft.

On September 10, 2022 we discovered that our new trailer was stolen from its parking space at Life Storage, 380 West Palmdale Blvd.  Many support items for our AV Wall display were in the trailer. Fortunately, our beloved Wall panels are safely stored in our original trailer.  A stolen vehicle report has been filed with Palmdale Sheriff’s Station.

We are blessed with funds, perseverance, and a determined mindset to be able to push forward with our November 9-13 AV Wall display in Palmdale.

We are not asking for monetary donations, but we will appreciate your prayers and volunteer time during the set-up of the display.

 We also ask you to be on the lookout for any of our stolen items:

  • 2022 7’x18’ White Carson Trailer license plate 4UR2572
  • 4”x4” black steel tubing with attached stakes
  • 8 Wood slat benches with black metal backs
  • 16 4”x4”x16’ engineered lumber (glue-lams)
  • AV Wall/Point Man AV Tent Canopy with walls
  • Keychain beads representing US Military conflicts
  • Battlefield Cross box and contents (replica rifle, helmet, boots)
  • 4 100’ yellow #10 extension cords
  • 24 Orange work lights with stakes
  • 2 120’ 8-gauge electric cord with spliced-in junction boxes
  • 36” Red, white, and blue floral wreath with large red ribbon
  • 4 Black sign holders with AV Wall Hallowed Ground signs

Pictures of our stolen items can be found in Dropbox. https://www.dropbox.com/scl/fo/zdajz38gyit1b5ckkcpjl/h?dl=0&rlkey=5w9jyp6nfb2za35ojjrv8rq0i

This theft is a definite hurdle and we know the set-up for our Palmdale display will be much more difficult, but our mission is to display our Wall to promote healing and to honor our fallen warriors. We promise to fulfill that mission.

Please contact any AV Wall Board member if you have any information on our stolen items.

Thank you for your support,

Mike Bertell, President

Linda Willis, Secretary

Stacia Nemeth, Treasurer and Volunteer Coordinator

Glen Nester, Engineer

Conrad Hernandez, Chief of Protocol

Augie Anderson, Gold Star Ambassador

Steve Willis, Logistics Coordinator
