WASHINGTON, D.C. – Boyce-Houser Post 41 American Legion in Keyser is proud to announce that they have been able to schedule a visit to Mineral County for one of the most emotional and patriotic displays in the United States.
The Wall That Heals, a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, along with a mobile Education Center, is coming to Ft. Ashby on Oct. 11 -14, 2018 at the Mineral County Fairgrounds and will be open 24 hours a day and 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 more than 58,000 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam.
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial is one of the most visited memorials in our nation’s capital, with more than 5.3 million visitors each year. However, many Americans have not been able to visit what has become known to many as “The Wall.”
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF), the organization that built The Wall in 1982, wants to give all veterans and their family members across America an opportunity to see the memorial. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Replica Wall and Mobile Education Center spreads healing legacy of The Wall and educates about the impact of the Vietnam War.
 “VVMF is pleased to bring The Wall That Heals mobile exhibit to this area to allow local veterans and their family members a chance to visit The Wall and honor and remember those who have served and sacrificed,” said Jim Knotts, president and CEO of VVMF. “We hope it provides an opportunity for healing and an educational experience for the whole community on the impact of the Vietnam War on America.”
                Post 41 is in the process of securing sponsors to fund this display and volunteers to work during the visit. Any organization wishing to help may call the Post at 304-788-6629 or email to boycehouser41@gmail.com. Further information on this event will be published at a later date.
