The morning of September 6th The Wall and Education trailer arrived safely in Kalispell, Montana. It was escorted by the Montana Highway Patrol, local law enforcement and a Motorcycle Escort. The Wall That Heals and Education Trailer drew great crowds and public support was amazing.  We were unable to have our Military Flyover on September 7th due to the excessive smoke our Flathead Valley was enduring, however, Our Opening Ceremonies and Wreath Laying was spectacular. Local Students helped place an American Flags to represent each Montana Service Members listed on the Wall. A huge THANK YOU to the Wall the Heals staff and ALL the volunteers who went above and beyond to make this a memorable, successful and healing experience for all who attended.

On Veterans Day 1996, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) unveiled a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., designed to travel to communities throughout the United States. Since its dedication, The Wall That Heals has visited more than 400 cities and towns throughout the Nation, spreading the Memorial's healing legacy to millions.

Bringing The Wall home to communities throughout our country allows the souls enshrined on the Memorial to exist once more among family and friends in the peace and comfort of familiar surroundings. The traveling exhibit provides thousands of veterans who have been unable to cope with the prospect of facing The Wall to find the strength and courage to do so within their own communities, thus allowing the healing process to begin. The main components of The Wall That Heals are The Wall replica and the mobile Education Center.   http://www.vvmf.org/2017-twth-tour
