For four days, October 17-20, 2019, the Wall that Heals Vietnam Veterans Memorial Replica may be viewed in Braswell Park, 1501 Western Blvd, Tarboro, North Carolina.  Visitors may visit the wall starting Thursday, October 17, 2019 at 9am, all day-and-night through Friday and Saturday, until Sunday, October 20, 2019, at 2pm.

The Wall That Heals exhibit features a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. The replica is 375 feet in length and stands 7.5 feet high at its tallest point. Visitors experience The Wall rising above them as they walk towards the apex, a key feature of the design of The Wall in D.C.

The replica travels the country as part of the mission of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund “to honor and preserve the legacy of service and educate all generations about the impact of the Vietnam War.” Along with the wall, a mobile education center provides visitors with information inside and out, including resources for locating names on the wall.

The Wall That Heals is in Edgecombe County due to the work of the town and the Edgecombe County Veterans’ Military Museum, located at 106 W Church Street in Tarboro, NC.
