The Wall That Heals Needs Volunteers and Names of Vietnam Era Veterans
The Washington County Community Foundation has been chosen to host The Wall That Heals, a scaled replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, along with a mobile Education Center, to visit Washington County May 17-May 20, 2018 at the YMCA/Community Learning Center/Senior Citizen Center complex in Salem.
The exhibit includes The Wall replica and a mobile Education Center that comprises digital displays of photos of service members whose names are on The Wall; letters and memorabilia left at The Wall by visitors; a map of Vietnam; and a chronological overview of the Vietnam War. It tells the story of the Vietnam War, The Wall, and the era surrounding the conflict, and is designed to place American experiences in Vietnam in an historical and cultural context.
Volunteers are needed for several areas of The Wall That Heals including assisting in the Mobile Education Center, assisting visitors with finding names, and assistance at The Wall. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and a link will be sent to you to sign up. We encourage you to sign up for multiple shifts and multiple days. If you have difficulty signing up, please call Stephanie at 502-291-7360. Volunteers are requested to sign-up to volunteer by April 15, 2018.
We are also looking for Vietnam Era Veterans that currently reside in Washington County. If you are a Vietnam Era Veteran or know one, please call 812-883-7334 or email email@example.com.
