ARVADA, COLORADO, USA, May 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Faith Bible Chapel and the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 1071 host "The Wall That Heals" outside in Faith Bible Chapel’s open field on its West Campus at 6250 Wright St., Arvada. The wall will be open 24 hours a day from the evening of Wed., June 19, through Sun., June 23.
This three-quarters replica of the original Vietnam Memorial in Washington, D.C., is a powerful educational opportunity for students, veterans and our community as a whole.
The names of more than 58,000 service members who died in the Vietnam War are inscribed on the wall. Lit by LED lights, the wall can be experienced 24 hours a day. Name rubbings can also be etched with pencil as keepsakes for friends and family. The Wall that Heals, a project of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund, has visited close to 600 cities across America. It’s 375 feet in length and is comprised of 140 numbered panels. It stands 7.5 feet high at its tallest point. The 53-foot trailer that transports The Wall That Heals transforms to become a mobile education center once the wall is set up. The exterior of the trailer features a timeline of the Vietnam War. In addition, digital displays show pictures of local heroes who are featured on the wall. Many volunteers set up and take down the wall while other volunteers are available to counsel visitors who need it.
