A special thanks to all who helped make the "The Wall that Heals" Traveling Vietnam Memorial a great success. It takes a lot to put this event together. From collecting donations, planning events, getting volunteers to set up, take down, assist people finding their loved ones names and protecting the wall. Also, supplying drinks, snacks, meals for the volunteers. It took a village to put this all together. And once again you made Wayne County Proud! Thank You!!
