Every year in for the last 16 years, the traveling Vietnam Veterans Memorial, known as “The Wall,” is on display and open to the public for viewing at the Welk Resort Branson in November 5-11, 2012. The official half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the most visited memorial in Washington, D.C., spans nearly 240 feet in length and lists the more than 58,000 names of the nation’s fallen heroes in the Vietnam conflict.
“It is with a sense of gratitude and honor that the Welk Family and The Welk Resort sponsor this tribute,” Dathan Atchison, General Manager of the Welk Resort. “We invite our visitors and our neighbors to come experience this moving memorial.”
The Wall is available for public viewing from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM November 5-11. A special locator book will be available to assist visitors in finding specific names.
As is customary, the names inscribed on the wall will be read aloud throughout the seven day period by local volunteers.
