You are invited to welcome The Wall That Heals by lining the streets of the arrival route (Route map below). The exhibit will enter Garland at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25, and make its way to Audubon Park. View map of the arrival route for parking. Please honor them by waving American flags or simply a welcoming hand wave.
There will be a special Welcome Home Ceremony at 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 27. This event gives us the chance to welcome The Wall That Heals to Garland and North Texas, as well as honor those who served in Vietnam and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
The Wall That Heals, a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial along with a mobile Education Center, is coming to Garland Thursday, Feb. 27, through Sunday, March 1. The exhibit will be on display at Audubon Park, 342 W. Oates Road, and will be open 24 hours a day, free to the public.
More than 100 volunteers will be needed to set up and take down the replica wall, staff the exhibit and guide visitors 24 hours a day. To learn more about how you can help the effort, email Albert Montero or sign up online.
