the names of the more than 58,000 men and women who made the ultimate
sacrifice in Vietnam.

Vietnam Veterans Memorial is one of the most visited memorials in our
nation’s capital, with more than 5.6 million visitors each year.
However, many Americans have not been able to visit what has become
known to many as “The Wall.” The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund
(VVMF), the organization that built The Wall in 1982, wants to
provide all veterans, their family members, and the general public
across America an opportunity to visit the memorial.
The Wall That Heals on the road gives thousands more veterans and
their family members an opportunity to see The Wall and honor those
who have served and sacrificed so much,” said Jim Knotts, president
and CEO of VVMF. “It helps veterans from all of America’s
conflicts to find healing and a powerful connection through their
common military experiences.”
than 200,000 people visited The Wall That Heals in 2016. Since its
debut in 1996, the exhibit has been on display in nearly 500 U.S.
communities, as well as internationally during an April 1999 tour of
the Four Provinces of Ireland, and a visit to Canada in 2005.

2017 national The Wall That Heals tour is transported through a

the half-scale replica of the memorial
replica Wall is approximately 250 feet in length, and like the
original memorial is erected in a chevron-shape. The replica is
constructed of powder-coated aluminum, supported by an aluminum
frame, and is made up of 24 individual panels, each containing six
columns of names.
names on The Wall That Heals replicate the names on The Wall in
Washington, D.C. As on The Wall, the names are listed alphabetically
by day of casualty. Beginning at the center/apex, the names start on
the East Wall (right-hand side) working their way out to the end of
that wing, picking up again at the far end of the West Wall
(left-hand side) and working their way back to the center/apex. Thus,
the beginning and ending of the conflict are joined at the center,
signifying an epoch in American history.
VVMF and the Education Center at The Wall
is the nonprofit organization that built the Vietnam Veterans
Memorial (The Wall) in Washington, D.C. in 1982. VVMF is dedicated to
honoring and preserving the legacy of service in America and
educating all generations about the impact of the Vietnam War and its
associated era through programs, ceremonies and education materials.
decades after building The Wall, the mission continues as VVMF raises
funds to build the Education Center at The Wall in Washington, D.C.
The Center will be an interactive learning facility on the National
Mall where our military heroes' stories and sacrifice will never be
Education Center will feature the faces and stories of the more than
58,000 men and women on The Wall and honor America's legacy of
service, including those serving in our nation's Armed Forces today.

Education Center at The Wall. To learn more about VVMF and the future
