The Wall That Heals

May 30, 2024
 - June 2, 2024

The Hartland Chamber of Commerce has been working on a unique project for the past several months, and we are excited to announce that Hartland will be a host site for The Wall That Heals, May 30 – June 2, 2024 in Nixon Park. As one of 32 host sites chosen this year from across the country, including Hawaii, Hartland is the only stop in the state of Wisconsin for 2024.
The Wall That Heals is a three-quarter scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. There are several other privately-owned walls that have traveled the country, but this is the only wall owned by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. This traveling exhibit, including a Mobile Education Center, enables veterans and their families to experience the memorial’s comfort and peace within their own communities, fostering the healing process for many who have struggled to confront their memories. The Mobile Education Center includes a map of Vietnam, a timeline of the war and artifacts left at The Wall in Washington D.C. In addition, a display of Hometown Heroes and the In Memory Honor Roll will be showing.
There are 58,281 names on The Wall That Heals. There are 67 names from Waukesha County including 3 from Hartland. I encourage you to take some time to click on their names and learn more about our local heroes, some of who are from your own communities. In addition, some of the counties that touch Waukesha County will also have veteran’s names displayed as part of the Hometown Heroes exhibit, so if you know families or friends from the surrounding area, invite them to see The Wall That Heals exhibit while it is here for this brief time.
The Wall That Heals will be escorted into Hartland on Tuesday, May 28th, leaving from Mukwonago. Assembly of the display begins on Wednesday, May 29th and will then be open 24 hours a day for viewing until it closes at 2:00 pm, Sunday, June 2, 2024. An opening ceremony takes place on Thursday, May 30 at 9:00.am, featuring keynote speakers, retired Lt. General Dan Karbler, and retired Vice Admiral Dirk Debbink, both local veterans. This event is free and open to all.
