Haven’t had the chance to visit Washington, D.C., and see the Vietnam Veterans Memorial? A miniature version that’s about half the size of the permanent memorial, completed in 1982, is making a stop in the Inland Northwest this weekend as part of a community partnership. Since this 250-foot replica was unveiled in 1996, it has toured more than 400 U.S. cities, bringing its message of healing and strength to communities whose members’ names are listed among those of more than 58,000 servicemen and servicewomen whose lives were lost during the long period of war from 1959 to 1975. Of these brave American servicemembers inscribed on its surface, 244 were from the Inland Northwest. The Wall That Heals and its mobile education center are open 24 hours a day during each of its stops; see the link below for details on its Spokane visit.
