THE WALL THAT HEALS
Alongside the Kutztown Vietnam Veterans Breakfast Club, the KCP is proud to announce that from September 21st, 2023 – September 24th, 2023, Kutztown will host The Wall That Heals—a 375-foot replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial located in Washington, D.C. We are more than honored to have received this privilege from the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund.
The Wall That Heals is a mobile replica that tours across American communities to commemorate and honor those who sacrificed and served during this divisive era of U.S. history. Veterans, family members, and all community members are encouraged to visit The Wall That Heals during its stay in Kutztown.
In addition to the 375-foot-long and 7.5-foot-high memorial replica, The Wall That Heals includes a mobile Education Center exhibit that teaches visitors about local military heroes. The exhibit will include digital photo displays that highlight Vietnam Veterans local to Kutztown, videos describing the impact and history of The Wall, and many other educational mementos.
We are grateful to offer this experience to the Kutztown community and encourage all that are interested to check back in regularly as we will be posting updates and blog articles documenting The Wall’s journey to our hometown.
This event will be hosted by the Kutztown Vietnam Veterans Breakfast Club and Kutztown Community Partnership.
We are in need of volunteers during the time we host The Wall That Heals beginning Thursday, September 21, 2023, until Sunday, September 24, 2023, at 2:00 p.m. Over 200 volunteers are needed to support the 24-hour display of The Wall That Heals.
