The Wall That Heals Comes to the Spokane Area
August 24-27, 2017
Mirabeau Meadows at Mirabeau Point Park
Spokane Valley, Washington
KSPS and our partner organizations are pleased to welcome The Wall That Heals to Spokane in August.
The Wall That Heals is a 250-foot replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, along with a mobile Education Center. It will be open 24 hours a day and is free to the public. It honors the more than three million Americans who served in the U.S. Armed forces in the Vietnam War (including some 25,000 from the Inland Northwest) and it bears the names of the more than 58,000 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam.
About 100 volunteers are needed to cover shifts around the clock while The Wall That Heals and Education Center are on display. Join us!
