American Veterans Traveling Tribute (AVTT) is a multi-division Nationally recognized Veteran owned and operated small business. AVTT got their start through the improved construction of their 80% Traveling Vietnam Wall, while being a part of more than 300 events across America over the last 8 years.
AVTT prides itself on the support of our Armed Forces and continues our mission of Honor Respect Remembrance for our fallen and serving men and women in uniform. Additionally, AVTT allows those without the means or ability to travel to our great national memorial sites to pay respect and share in the experience of honoring our heroes.
