THE WALL THAT HEALS IS COMING TO CUERO, TEXAS ON
FEBRUARY 9, 2017 – FEBRUARY 12, 2017
The Wall That Heals, a 250-foot replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, along with a mobile Education Center, is coming to Cuero, Texas on February 9, 2017 – February 12, 2017 at the Cuero Municipal Park Knoll, located on Leonard Roy Harmon Drive & HWY 87 with the memorial facing HWY 87 and will be open 24 hours a day and free to the public. The Wall That Heals honors the more than three million Americans who served in the U.S. Armed Forces during the Vietnam War and its walls bear the names of the more than 58,000 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam. It provides a community with a multi-day experience that includes an educational experience for local schools and organizations on the history of the Vietnam era and The Wall. The exhibit includes a mobile Education Center comprised of photos of service members whose names are found on The Wall, letters and memorabilia left¬ at The Wall in D.C., a map of Vietnam and a chronological overview of the conflict in Vietnam. The exhibits tell the story of the Vietnam War, The Wall and the era surrounding the conflict, and are designed to put American experiences in Vietnam in a historical and cultural context.
