Mission Statement

The Wall That Heals, a traveling, half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., is coming to Urbandale, Iowa. Team Welcome Home is hosting: Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Event - featuring The Wall That Heals September 29th - October 2nd, 2016 Living History Farms, Urbandale, IA Open 24 hours, Free Admission

Description

So why bring the traveling wall to the area? The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is our nation’s Capitol’s most popular exhibit, not everyone can travel to Washington, D.C. The traveling replica gives communities the chance to pay respect to the more than 58,000 men and women that made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam and whose names appear on the Wall. Hosting The Wall That Heals is also a tremendous way to honor the more than 3 million individuals that served in the United States military during the Vietnam War. Since its debut in 1996 The Wall That Heals has stopped in over 400 communities and has been visited by more than 2 million people.

Who is Team Welcome Home? We are an unincorporated nonprofit association, comprised of a group of volunteers, including veterans and non-veterans from various organizations and businesses. Our goal with this project is to honor, remember and thank our Vietnam Veterans and their families; to help educate others about the Vietnam Era and to inspire patriotism.
