The Wall That Heals, the scaled down traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial will be here this week in honor of Memorial Day.
Presented by the Veterans Memorial Fund, a non-profit, The wall will be open to the public at all hours starting May 25th and will last until May 27th. The Wall That Heals also features a Traveling Museum and Information Center.
On Veterans Day 1996, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund unveiled a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., designed to travel to communities throughout the United States.
Bringing The Wall home to communities throughout our country allows the souls enshrined on the Memorial to exist once more among family and friends in the peace and comfort of familiar surroundings. The traveling exhibit, known as The Wall That Heals, allows the many thousands of veterans who have been unable to cope with the prospect of facing The Wall to find the strength and courage to do so within their own communities, thus allowing the healing process to begin
