The Wall That Heals, a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. and accompanying mobile Education Center, will be in Harrison for public viewing June 10 to June 13, 2021. 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.


The exhibit will be on display 24 hours a day at JTM Food Group, 110 Industrial Avenue, Harrison, Ohio 45030 from June 10 until closing at 2:00 p.m. on June 13.


Visitors can see the names of the more than 58,000 service members who made the ultimate sacrifice during the Vietnam War. Volunteers will be on hand to help visitors locate the names of men and women on The Wall who are from the greater Cincinnati area and all across the country. More information about the display is available on The Wall That Heals website.


The Wall That Heals was originally scheduled to be in Harrison in 2020 but was rescheduled due to the pandemic. From Harrison, the exhibit’s next stop will be Champlain, New York. 


Local businesses JTM, F&M MAFCO and Geograph are sponsoring the visit to Harrison. Volunteers from several area organizations including Southwest Local Schools, American Legion Yeager-Benson Memorial Post 199, Amvets Post 13, VFW Post 7570 and USO Ohio are working with City of Harrison officials to plan for the display.

 

More information and updates will be shared on the City Calendar.
