West Valley City is hosting "The Wall That Heals" which is a 50% replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall located in Washington, DC.
Here are some details of this event:
On Thursday, June 30th a procession will escort the trailer carrying the wall from Camp Williams to Centennial Park.
It will leave Camp Williams at 9:30 AM and travel along Redwood Road to 3500 South where it will then travel to 5600 West and then on to Centennial Park (entering off of 3100 South).
The Opening Ceremony will be from 6:00 - 6:30 PM on Thursday, June 30th. Speakers will include Representative Chris Stewart and COL Gary Harter, Executive Director of the Utah Department of Military and Veteran Affairs. COL Harter will read the Governor's Declaration.
The wall will remain open 24 hours a day until Tuesday, July 5th at 8 AM.
We are still in need of volunteers to assist people at the wall and in the information tent. Anyone high school age and older are welcome to volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering please go to www.wvc-ut.gov/WallthatHeals to fill out an electronic form.
