It’s one of two stops in North Carolina this year, marking the 50th anniversary of the end of the war in Vietnam.
“The Wall That Heals,” a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in D.C., is officially in North Carolina.
The traveling wall arrived in Havelock, NC, Tuesday, and will be on display today through Monday (Nov. 5) on Governmental Avenue, near Havelock City Hall.
It’s one of two stops this year for the wall in NC, which will return Nov. 16-19 to Nags Head.
The original Vietnam memorial was dedicated in 1982, and enshrines the names of more than 58,000 members of the American military who died in the conflict, which lasted more than 20 years.
More than 216,000 servicemen and servicewomen from NC served in the war; 1,302 were killed in action and approximately 300 died by other causes, according to the Encyclopedia of North Carolina from UNC Press.
Also, don’t forget Veterans Day is Nov. 11. This year is particularly significant for Vietnam veterans because it marks the 50th anniversary of the war’s end. For more info on the wall and how to see it, go here.
