The Wall was unveiled on Veterans Day of 1996 by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) and is designed to travel to communities throughout the United States.  In the time since, The Wall That Heals has traveled to over 700 communities spreading the Memorial's healing legacy.

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.

This impressive display will include the names of 267 Montanans who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, 21 of them from right here in Butte.  The exhibit will be open 24 hours a day and must be manned at all times by local volunteers.  Organizers are signing people up now for 4-hour shifts over the course of the event and many time slots are available.  If you are willing to take more than one shift, please do so.  To sign up, just click here. If you have any questions about The Wall That Heals or volunteer opportunities, please call Michael Taapken at (406) 431-3506 or visit their website.
