A candlight vigil was held on Saturday, July 9th and the closing ceremony on Sunday, July 10th. All of these special events were held throughout the weekend to honor and remember the thousands of brave men and women whose names are etched into the granite wall.
"The Wall That Heals represents sacrifice, honor and courage. It represents the men and women, sons and daughters, who lost their lives as Vietnam veterans. It is a commemoration to ensure our Vietnam vets that we, as a grateful nation, will never forget their sacrifice. There is a saying that 'A man does not die until he is forgotten'. The Vietnam Memorial Wall That Heals is a monument to ensure that we will never forget.”
Guest speaker Carmen Sendejas, wife of Mayor David A. Gonzalez
