Paying Homage to the Local Heroes who Bravely Served Our Country
The Kutztown Vietnam Veterans Breakfast Club’s initiative to display military hero banners on light poles in the Kutztown Park, and along Borough streets, is underway. The program recognizes any current and past military veterans, and supported by the Kutztown Community Partnership (KCP), Kutztown Civic Organizations and the Borough of Kutztown.
In addition to the Hero Banner program, the Kutztown Vietnam Veterans Breakfast Club is raising funds for two new initiatives:
Printing of the Kutztown Area Veteran's book, featuring interviews of local veterans and their stories
Bringing the Mobile Vietnam Memorial Wall to Kutztown
THE WALL THAT HEALS
A Program of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund Founders of the Wall
“The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is pleased to bring The Wall That Heals mobile exhibit to KUTZTOWN, PA to allow local veterans and their family members a chance to experience The Wall,” said Jim Knotts, president and CEO of VVMF. “Hosting The Wall That Heals provides an opportunity to honor and remember all those who served and sacrificed in the Vietnam War and educate visitors on the continuing impact of the Vietnam War on America.”
The Wall That Heals is transported from community to community in a 53-foot trailer. When parked, the trailer opens with exhibits built into its sides, allowing it to serve as a mobile Education Center telling the story of the Vietnam War, The Wall and the divisive era in American history.
The three-quarter scale Wall replica is 375 feet in length and stands 7.5 feet high at its tallest point. Visitors will experience The Wall rising above them as they walk towards the apex, a key feature of the design of The Wall in D.C. Visitors are able to do name rubbings of individual service member’s names on The Wall.
