Assemblymember Frazier Brings Replica of Vietnam Veterans Memorial to Sacramento

Saturday, March 1, 2014

(Sacramento) – Anyone who has been to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. knows the power of seeing and touching the names of the service men and women who sacrificed their lives for our country. But not everyone can make the trip to our nation's capital. That's why California State Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Oakley) brought a traveling replica of the Wall to Sacramento. "The Wall that Heals" is a mobile, half-scale version of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial that has visited more than 350 cities.

"On designated holidays, our nation pauses to remember those who gave their lives in service with ceremonies and parades, but that honor and respect must extend further," said Assemblymember Frazier. "One way to honor the fallen and reflect on the sacrifices of those who served in Vietnam is to visit The Wall That Heals. It is my honor and privilege to host the event in Sacramento and share it with the community."

The Wall That Heals will be open for public viewing on the West Lawn of the California State Capitol in Sacramento from February 27 to March 2, 2014. The exhibition is available to view 24 hours a day.
