The Muskogee War Memorial Park is proud to host The Wall That Heals! The Wall That Heals exhibition features a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.

 

It is approximately 250 feet in length, and like the original Memorial is erected in a chevron-shape.  The replica is constructed of powder-coated aluminum, supported by an aluminum frame, and is made up of 24 individual panels

 

As on The Wall, the names on The Wall That Heals are listed by day of casualty.  Beginning at the center/apex, the names start on the East Wall (right-hand side) working their way out to the end of that wing, picking up again at the far end of the West Wall (left-hand side) and working their way back in to the center/apex, joining the beginning and end of the conflict at the center.

 

Admission to the Wall That Heals will be free as well as the Muskogee War Memorial Park Museum.
