A replica of the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C. will be in Manitowoc later this summer and Door County veterans will have a free ride to see it. “The Wall That Heals” will be on display at the Manitowoc Expo grounds from September 12th through the 15th. Three buses have been chartered for September 14 to leave from the ADRC building in Sturgeon Bay at 10 am and return at 4 pm. Army veteran Dennis Ott says he has experienced “The Wall” first hand and hopes others will take advantage of this opportunity.
The Wall That Heals honors the more than three million Americans who served in the U.S. Armed Forces in the Vietnam War, and it bears the names of the more than 58,000 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam. Door County veterans interested in reserving free transportation should call the contact information found below. Each veteran may bring along a guest but must reserve by August 1.
