The Wall That Heals to Make Stop in Schenectady
The Vietnam Memorial Wall that Heals is making a stop in the Town of Princetown at the Town Hall, 165 Princetown Plaza, Schenectady.
The event has been organized by The Princetown Community Volunteers.
The Wall that Heals is a replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, DC. The Wall has 58,249 names of those killed or missing in action during the Vietnam Conflict, plus thousands of photos and artifacts on display. This solemn event will give us an opportunity to honor and pay respect to those vets who served and those who gave their last full measure of devotion to our country.
The display will be open 24 hours a day and there is no charge for admission and free parking.
