Vietnam Veterans Memorial Replica Coming to Frisco, Texas


A replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial along with a mobile education center, is coming to Frisco, Texas from May 2 until 5, 2024 at Grand Park, 7275 Dallas Pkwy, Frisco. Named the Wall That Heals, the memorial will be open 24 hours a day and will be free to the public.

The Wall That Heals honors the more than three million Americans who served in the U.S. Armed Forces in the Vietnam War, and it bears the names of the 58,281 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam.

"We're excited to introduce The Wall That Heals to Frisco for the first time, providing a healing and educational experience for all visitors," said Shenna Lawless, Commander of Frisco Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8273. “Honoring and remembering those who served in the Vietnam War is important, and we're dedicated to ensuring the Vietnam generation knows our deep appreciation for their service. Our goal is to ensure that the Vietnam generation knows how much we value their service still today."

The Wall That Heals travels in a 53-foot trailer, unfolding into a mobile Education Center when parked, recounting the Vietnam War's story. The three-quarter scale replica, 375 feet long and 7.5 feet high, lets visitors experience The Wall's towering presence, with the opportunity to make name rubbings of service members.

The mobile Education Center exhibit features several components, digital photo displays showcasing "Hometown Heroes," service members listed on The Wall with their hometown from Frisco and its neighboring communities; educational exhibits depicting items typically left at The Wall in D.C.; a replica of the In Memory plaque; a map of Vietnam; and a chronological overview of the Vietnam War.

These exhibits collectively narrate the story of the Vietnam War, The Wall and the era surrounding the conflict. They aim to offer a historical and cultural framework to understand the American experiences in Vietnam.
