AMVETS Post 96 in Eureka, California, is sponsoring a visit of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund Traveling Wall to Humboldt County. “The Wall That Heals” is a half-scale replica of the Washington, DC Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
The Wall That Heals will be on display at the Bear River Community Center (266 Keisner Road, Loleta, California) from Thursday, April 2 until early afternoon Sunday, April 5. It will be available to visit 24-hours per day at no charge.
In addition to The Wall, a Traveling Museum and Information Tent will be on site. Momentos and memorabilia left at The Wall will be tagged with identifying information for possible display in a future local community exhibit.
AMVETS Post 96 dedicates this activity to the memory of AMVETS Post 96 member Mark Sanchez. Mark and AMVETS were just beginning the effort to bring the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund Wall to our area and he passed away suddenly.
