HARRISBURG – The Pennsylvania Capitol building will be the home of a Vietnam Veterans Memorial replica, known as The Wall That Heals, from May 9 through 13, according to Senator Scott Wagner (R-York).
“The more than 58,000 soldiers who paid the ultimate sacrifice during the Vietnam War will be remembered through The Wall at the state Capitol next week,” Wagner said.
The Wall will be displayed for the public starting on May 9 at 7 p.m. until May 13 at 2 p.m.
The opening ceremony will feature former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge, who served as the nation’s first Secretary of Homeland Security and received the Bronze Star for Valor for his service in the Vietnam War.
Wagner believes this is an opportunity for all generations to see the names of the brave men and women who risked it all for the freedoms we enjoy as Americans.
“We should never take for granted the freedoms we enjoy as Americans,” Wagner said. “This memorial serves as a powerful reminder that freedom is not free.”
