Requesting The Wall That Heals

VVMF seeks site locations that can provide a welcoming, quiet atmosphere large enough to accommodate the two main components of The Wall That Heals. 

  • The Wall Replica: three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., approximately 375 feet in length. (Due to configuration of The Wall it must be displayed on a soft surface that can be staked)  
  • The mobile Education Center: When emptied, the sides of the 53-foot trailer that transports The Wall replica converts into a mobile Education Center displaying photos, history and memorabilia related to The Vietnam Veterans Memorial. (70 Feet by 50 Feet) 

The Wall schedule may vary depending upon travel needs, typically the mobile Education Center trailer arrives Tuesday evening and set-up of The Wall occurs all day Wednesday.  A volunteer orientation is conducted Wednesday evening by VVMF staff. The Wall then remains open 24 hours a day, closing on Sunday afternoon and will be dismantled immediately after the site closes. Before, during, and after each site, VVMF staff work with hosting organizations assisting with their program and event development to transform The Wall That Heals visit into a lasting impact for their community.  

In partnering, VVMF requests hosting organizations:

Schedule friendly volunteers to assist visitors to The Wall 

  • Provide a site, open to the public 24 hours a day 
  • Charge no admission fee for visitors  
  • Recruit setup and breakdown teams to assemble The Wall 
  • Arrange ceremonies around The Wall That Heals visit 
  • Promote the event throughout the community 
  • Establish a committee to manage the planning and display of The Wall
