The Wall That Heals

On Veterans Day 1996, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) unveiled a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., designed to travel to communities throughout the United States. Since its dedication, The Wall That Heals has visited more than 400 cities and towns throughout the nation, spreading the Memorial's healing legacy to millions.

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 main components of The Wall That Heals are The Wall replica and the mobile Education Center.

The Wall That Heals will be in Stockton MO May 11-14, 2017.  It will be open 24 hours and no admission charge.   There will be a Opening Ceremony on May 13, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. and a Closing Ceremony on May 14, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. If you wish to volunteer at this exhibit please contact City of Stockton at 276-5210.
