VIDEO: ‘The Wall That Heals’ Vietnam veterans memorial arrives this fall

Dare County has released a new video that highlights The Wall That Heals, which is a traveling, three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., that will be on display in Dare County from November 16-19, 2023.

Honoring the more than 3 million Americans who served in the U.S. Armed Forces during the Vietnam War, the 375-foot-long exhibit bears the names of the 58,281 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam.

The free exhibit is hosted by the Dare County Veterans Advisory Council, which worked with the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund to bring the official replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and its accompanying mobile education center to Dare County this fall.

The Wall That Heals will be open to the public 24 hours a day from November 16-19, 2023 at the Soundside Event Site, which is located at 6800 South Croatan Highway in Nags Head.
