The Wall That Heals Coming to Harrison

OK...wall11 (2)

Update 4/15/2020: The Wall That Heals visit to the Harrison area June 11-14, 2020 has been postponed. The VFW, City of Harrison and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund jointly decided to postpone the visit out of an abundance of caution for our visitors and volunteers. While disappointed this decision has become necessary, we already are looking at dates in 2021 to reschedule this important event.


Original Post 2/24/2020: The Wall That Heals, a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., will be in Harrison for public viewing, 24 hours a day from June 11 to June 14. The Wall That Heals will be located that week at the Harrison VFW Post 7570, 9160, Lawrenceburg Rd. The VFW and City of Harrison are working together on this project, and will be joined by many other service and social club volunteers to install the display on June 9, man the site continually, and disassemble the display on June 14. The display will be lit for convenient overnight viewing, in addition to daytime visitation hours.

The trailer that transports the exhibit opens up to become a mobile Education Center that displays items representative of those left at The Wall in Washington, D.C. Digital displays include photos of local service members whose names are on The Wall and local veterans honored through our In Memory program. The display is free to visit at your leisure while in Harrison to honor the more than 58,000 service members who made the ultimate sacrifice during the Vietnam War.  Visitors can also see a timeline of “The War and The Wall,” and learn about the legacy of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. More information about the display may be seen at the organization’s website: https://www.vvmf.org/The-Wall-That-Heals/

The City and VFW Duwel Post 7570 are raising $10,000 necessary to host The Wall That Heals in our community. If you are interesting in donating, please contact Shannon David Hamons at the City of Harrison by calling (513) 202-8492, or email him at shamons@harrisonohio.gov for more information. If you would like to volunteer to install, be a site host, or disassemble the display, please contact VFW Member Bill Floyd at (513) 293-4508 or redmandiv3@netscape.com. Look for more information in coming weeks about the event and opening and closing ceremonies.Wall logo 3OK...wall10 (2)
