The installation and community impact of “The Wall That Heals.”
On Veterans Day 1996, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) unveiled a 1/2 sized replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.. It was designed to travel to communities all over the United States. Since its dedication, The Wall That Heals has been displayed at nearly 700 communities throughout the nation, spreading the Memorial’s healing legacy to millions. It is now coming to Hawaii for the first time ever.
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 provides 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.
The Wall That Heals – Hilo Location – will be here at the end of January 2024 or early February. Many volunteers are needed to help with the setup and the dismantling along with the various tasks involved during its stay here in Hilo. Please checkout the Hilo website for The Wall That Heals for much more information and for the volunteers signup page.
