In October 2000, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund unveiled The Legacy of The Wall. In keeping with the Memorial Fund's mission, this traveling storyboard exhibit is designed to educate viewers — primarily students — about the impact of the Vietnam War.
In its first year, with the support of the Nebraska Humanities Council, the exhibit traveled throughout Nebraska to schools, libraries, veterans facilities and even the State Capitol building. The original exhibit was retired in 2008.
A new lightweight version of The Legacy of The Wall was unveiled in early 2009. Like the old exhibit, it consists of several two-sided panels, each with vivid images, timelines and simple text to tell the story of the Vietnam War, The Wall and their lasting legacies. The panels address a range of topics, from the American involvement in Vietnam, life on the home front and the soldiers' experience, to the history of The Wall, Memorial statistics and the different ways we honor our fallen heroes.
The new exhibit is available to schools and other public facilities at a cost of $500.00 plus shipping* and may remain at a location for a period of four weeks.
The Legacy of The Wall goes a long way in helping communities to educate their youngest citizens about the Vietnam War era, while also helping those who lived through the war to reflect, to remember and to heal.
For more information or to schedule a visit, please contact the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund at (202) 393-0090 or via email at email@example.com.
*The Memorial Fund will cover the cost to ship the exhibit to the site host. The site host is responsible for shipping the exhibit back to the Memorial Fund or on to the next site. The exhibit must be shipped via UPS, Federal Express or another carrier through which the materials may be tracked.
