Vietnam Veterans Memorial Replica Makes its Way to North Texas

GARLAND (WBAP/KLIF) – Veterans and volunteers worked together Wednesday to construct a replica of a well known memorial.

‘The Wall That Heals’ is a replica version of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C. that travels the country. The wall bears the names of the 58,276 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice. It will be at Garland’s Audubon Park through Sunday and is a chances for younger generations to learn about history.

“They may not even know about it,” said Marine Corps Vet Scott Wolf. “They may say what’s this dad. And he can say this is the men and women who gave their lives 40 or 50 years ago in another war.”

The replica will be open to the public 24 hours a day through Sunday afternoon.
