Vietnam Veterans Memorial Replica to be in Springfield this Weekend

For veterans, and families of veterans of the Vietnam War, visit the replica memorial that will be in Springfield this weekend.

Organizers say the Vietnam Veterans Memorial replica, which is slightly smaller than the original located in Washington D.C., will be at the Wesley United Methodist Church on West Republic will be available to visit until 2 p.m. Sunday.

Named the “Wall that Heals”, it’s purpose is to allow veterans and families to heal, while also educating younger people on the history of the conflict and those that sacrificed their lives.

The wall will be free to visit, but donations are encouraged to allow for more communities throughout the U.S. to view the work.
