In 1982, The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) dedicated The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C. Since its dedication, it has become one of the most visited memorials on the National Mall with over 5 million visits each year, yet millions of others are still unable to see The Wall in Washington D.C.
Shortly after The Wall’s dedication, the first traveling version began touring the country. In 1996, VVMF recognized a need to provide a traveling version of The Memorial and The Wall That Heals (TWTH) was dedicated. While these other exhibits are necessary to meet the public’s desire, as the founders of The Wall, VVMF sought to differentiate its exhibit by replicating The Wall experience as much as possible. To this day, this is accomplished through ongoing and close cooperation between the hosting organizations, their communities, and VVMF.
Of the four “walls” traveling throughout the United States, The Wall That Heals is the largest replica, the only one wholly owned and operated by a non-profit organization, and the only one accompanied by the mobile Education Center.
The preeminent exhibit coupled with close involvement of VVMF staff and significant preparations by hosts helps ensure a positive experience for every community selected to host The Wall That Heals.
