[ARCHIVED] The Wall That Heals Is Coming to Garland

The Wall That Heals-360x527(1)

The Wall That Heals, a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial along with a mobile Education Center, is coming to Garland Thursday, Feb. 27, through Sunday, March 1. The exhibit will be on display at Audubon Park, 342 W. Oates Road, and will be open 24 hours, free to the public. The City of Garland and Visit Garland are leading the effort that will bring the exhibit to the metroplex. The Wall That Heals honors the more than 3 million Americans who served in the U.S. armed forces in the Vietnam War and it bears the names of the 58,276 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam.

There will be a special Welcome Home Ceremony at 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27. This event gives us the chance to welcome The Wall That Heals to Garland and North Texas, as well as honor those who served in Vietnam and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

Community support is needed to bring The Wall That Heals to Garland. More than 100 volunteers will be needed to set up and take down the replica Wall, staff the exhibit and guide visitors 24 hours a day. Financial and in-kind donations are also needed to help support this community event. To learn more about the event and how you can help the effort, visit bit.ly/GarlandTWTH.
