The Wall That Heals"

I hope everyone had a safe and healthy winter season. With the world starting to open up again there are many things to look forward to as the weather warms up. This summer the City of Tonawanda will be visited by a special Vietnam Veterans memorial wall, honoring the men and women who served in Vietnam “The Wall That Heals" is a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington. It will be on display from July 22 thru July 25, 2021. It's free to visit and open 24 hours a day. This gives everyone an opportunity to see and pay their respects if they have never seen it in Washington D.C. The wall honors more than three million Americans who served in the United States Armed Forces in the Vietnam War and it has the names of the 58, 279 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam. The wall itself is 375 feet in length and stands 7.5 feet high at its tallest point. There's also a mobile education center that will display information about our "Hometown Heroes" that are on the wall. I look forward to helping with the set up of this exhibit and hope to see my fellow Brothers and Sisters there.
