The Wall That Heals, a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, was on view in Scranton’s Nay Aug Park October 6-9, 2011 as a complement to the Everhart Museum’s fall exhibit Nights of 9/11 and in recognition of the 10th anniversary of “Operation Enduring Freedom.”
Admission to The Wall That Heals was free and open to the public 24 hours a day during this four-day period. The Wall That Heals was accompanied by a Traveling Museum display and Information Center providing a comprehensive educational component designed to enhance the visitor experience.
The Wall That Heals is a project of the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Fund (VVMF), the nonprofit organization authorized by the U.S. Congress in 1980 to build a national memorial dedicated to all who served with the U.S. armed forces in the Vietnam War. On Veterans Day 1996, the VVMF inaugurated The Wall That Heals, the only traveling replica that is directly affiliated with the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.
October 2011 marked the return visit of The Wall That Heals to the Everhart Museum and Nay Aug Park. We look forward to its return in 2015!
