The Wall That Heals to visit the Greater Boston Area (Nahant, MA)
Washington, D.C. – The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) has announced The Wall That Heals national tour schedule for 2021. The Wall That Heals exhibit includes a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial along with a mobile Education Center. The 26th season of The Wall That Heals will begin on April 8, 2021 in New Bern, North Carolina and visit 28 communities during the year. The traveling exhibit honors the more than three million Americans who served in the U.S. Armed Forces in the Vietnam War and it bears the names of the 58,279 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam.
“Like many events and activities in our nation, our 2020 The Wall That Heals season was dramatically changed by the pandemic. We are excited to find these communities ready to work carefully to give a safe opportunity for thousands to experience the healing and educational aspects of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in 2021,” said Jim Knotts, president and CEO of VVMF. “We look forward to providing these communities with the 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.”
Nahant American Legion Post 215 is proud to have been selected as one of only two New England appearances of the Wall that Heals.
