This July, WQPT-Quad Cities PBS will be hosting The Wall That Heals along with a series events, including Veterans History Project, televised screenings, Military Kids Day and more.
The Wall That Heals is mobile half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial (The Wall) in Washington, D.C., accompanied by a Mobile Education Center.
The Wall That Heals exhibit is an outstanding educational tool. It also provides veterans who have been unable to cope with the prospect of facing The Wall to find the strength and courage to do so within their own communities, thus allowing the healing process to begin. The Wall that Heals allows the souls enshrined on the Memorial to exist once more among family and friends in the peace and comfort of familiar surroundings.
The Mobile Education Center features memorabilia left at the The Wall in Washington, D.C. along with personal letters and information about the conflict in Vietnam.
The Wall That Heals exhibit will be available to view at the Western Illinois University-Quad Cities campus, located at 6600 334th Avenue, Moline. Additional information regarding events and other activities will be posted as it becomes available.
WQPT will need volunteers to help with the events. Learn more
