The Wall That Heals returns to Dallas for New Years Day

The Wall That Heals and Traveling Education Center will be on display out side of the Inaugural Ticket City Bowl at the newly renovated Cotton Bowl Stadium.  The game between a Big 10 and Big 12 school will at place in Dallas Texas on January 1st.

The Wall That Heals and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund are proud to bring the healing power of The Wall and our Traveling Museum and Education Center back to the heart of Texas.  There are 3, 416 Texans who paid the ultimate sacrifice during the Vietnam war and The Wall That Heals is a venue for veterans, family members, and patriots to pay their respects and discover the faces and stories of these American heroes.  Owner of the San Antonio Spurs, Peter Holt, has issued a Texas Match program to challenge Texans to raise $1 Million to honor their hometown heroes.  Mr. Holt will match every dollar donated from Texas.  We will also be continuing our Call For Photos.  If you have pictures of a friend or loved one on The Wall please bring it to the Traveling Education Center to be scanned and uploaded to the profile on The Virtual Wall.  These photos will be included in the soon to be built Education Center at The Wall in Washington, DC.

There will be a Motorcycle Escort to be announced soon.  Follow us on facebook to keep in touch and get details as they become available.

We need volunteers to help set up The Wall on December 31st and to help visitors during the game.  If interested email Jason Cain at cladd@vvmf.org.
