Vietnam Veterans Memorial “The Wall that Heals September 24 – 28, 2014 Beaver to once again host the Vietnam Veterans Memorial "The Wall that Heals" On Veterans Day, 1996 the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund unveiled a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. This memorial is designed to travel to communities throughout the United States. Since its dedication, the Traveling Wall, or the Wall that Heals has visited more than 350 communities throughout the nation, allowing millions the opportunity to see this amazing memorial that they may otherwise never the opportunity to see. Now, thanks to the Vietnam Veterans of America, Beaver County Chapter #862 (which by the way is the largest VVA Chapter in Pennsylvania, and the third largest chapter in the USA), Beaver will once again be hosting this event. The wall will be here from September 24th through the 28th. The opening ceremony will be on September 24th at 7:00PM in Quay Square. There will be various displays including vintage military vehicles during the week. The event will culminate with a memorial "Ride to the Wall", allowing hundreds of motorcycle enthusiasts to replicate the ride to the wall held in Washington, D.C. each year to honor the fallen troops who served their country during Vietnam. Closing ceremonies will be conducted after the ride. It is with great honor that our Vietnam Veterans bring this memorial to the residents of Beaver. You will not want to miss the memorable event.
