The Wall That Heals, a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, will be hosted by the Worcester County Veterans Memorial at Ocean Pines Foundation. 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.
We need the support of people like you to make this a success.
Volunteer: Over 150 volunteers will be needed – 30 strong people for set up/take down and 120 to staff the exhibit 24 hours a day. Training will be provided. Please contact Frank Bolen at email@example.com or (302) 245 5216.
The Wall That Heals is 375 feet in length and 7.5 feet high at its tallest point. Visitors will be able to do name rubbings of individual service member’s names on the wall.
The 53-foot trailer that carries The Wall That Heals transforms to become a mobile Education Center that features a timeline of “The War and The Wall” and provides additional information about the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. Additional exhibits give visitors a better understanding of the legacy of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and the collection of items left at The Wall.
- Hometown Heroes – Photos of service members on The Wall who list their home of record from the local area. The photos are part of the effort to put a face to every name on The Wall and for the Wall of Faces.
- In Memory Honor Roll – Photos of local Vietnam veterans honored through VVMF’s In Memory program which honors veterans who returned home and later died of Vietnam-related illnesses.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, volunteers will be required to wear masks. Visitors will be encouraged to wear masks and practice social distancing to safeguard the staff, volunteers and other visitors.
