The Wall That Heals Begins 2013 Tour

The Wall That Heals began a promising 2013 nation-wide tour with a desperately cold snow storm in Columbus, Ohio on March 24. Despite the freezing temperatures and winter storm, over 400 people made it out to see the half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial during its first two days at the Ohio History Center.

The Department of Defense created a new display in The Wall That Heals’s information tent.

Thanks to our generous supporters, we were able to give the trailer a new updated look. The wrap around the trailer now features the faces of fallen service members and the Vietnam War Commemoration seal. Throughout the 2013 tour season, The Wall That Heals will be further renewed with the addition of new displays.

Join us as we travel the nation, visiting communities where we are invited and continuing to grow and improve along the way!
