LANSING, Ill. (July 7, 2022) – Melanie and Josh shot their video a day early this week to preview The Wall That Heals, a Vietnam Veterans Memorial replica that will be open at Marian Catholic High School through Sunday, July 10.
- Brochures are available at The Wall That Heals, and each brochure has a fold-out blank sheet for rubbing names with a pencil, crayon, or pen.
- Those visiting the memorial looking for someone specific can find the location of their soldier’s name at vvmf.org. Volunteers will also be available at the memorial to help people find a specific name.
- Marian Catholic High School is located at 700 Ashland Avenue in Chicago Heights. Visitors should enter the westernmost parking lot on Joe Orr Road to visit The Wall That Heals.
