More than 10,000 visitors have come to ‘The Wall That Heals’ in Crivitz since Thursday. Visitors are getting closure and paying their respects to those who made the ultimate sacrifice during the Vietnam War.
‘The Wall That Heals’ is a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C. The wall displays more than 58,000 names of those who gave their lives during the Vietnam War, and 1,500 names of unaccounted service members. …
‘The Wall That Heals’ is a community effort, with more than 300 volunteers helping.
Hundreds joined Governor Scott Walker in a ceremony at the wall Saturday morning, honoring those unaccounted for.
“I just think it’s a wonderful thing, it shows how a small town coming together can really make a difference and particularly not just for the community and the region as a whole, but for all the Vietnam Veterans. This is just one more compelling way to say thank you to a group of our veterans who in many cases weren’t given the proper thanks,” said Governor Scott Walker.
