'Wall That Heals’ On Display At Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park

CREATED Jun 26, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A scaled-down version of the famous Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall is in Nashville this weekend.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund along with volunteers set up the "Wall That Heals" at the Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park on Wednesday morning.

Veterans, family members, students and citizens can see the smaller version of the Vietnam Wall in Washington, D.C. through Sunday.

Exhibits will also be on site to tell the story of the Vietnam War, The Wall and the era surrounding the conflict, and are designed to put American experiences in Vietnam in a historical and cultural context.

At 1 p.m. Thursday, the finding the missing "Faces of Valor" rally will be held. Tennessee State Senator Mark Green and his fellow State Senators plan to announce a campaign to find the pictures of every Tennessean killed or missing in action.
