The Wall That Heals Escort
Rocky Mount, North Carolina – 10-15-19
ABOUT THE MISSION:
We have been invited by the City of Tarboro to escort The Wall That Heals into the city where it will be display for the community to visit.
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 is an actual three-quarter replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC and Mobile Education Center that gives visitors a better understanding of the legacy of the wall and educates about the impact of the Vietnam War.
Like the original Memorial, The Wall That Heals is erected in a chevron-shape and visitors can do name rubbings of individual service member’s names on The Wall. Machine engraving of the more than 58,000 names along with modern LED lighting provide readability of The Wall day and night. As on The Wall, the names on The Wall That Heals are listed by day of casualty.
